Caribou hunting regulations along the North’s Dempster Highway are too restrictive and even infringe on his people’s right to hunt, says a Gwich’in aboriginal leader in Fort McPherson, N.W.T.

The regulations, which were created in the early 1990s by a joint board that included one Gwich’in representative, were made without properly consulting his community, Fort McPherson band chief Wilbert Firth told CBC News.
