You are referring to the ANWR (Arctic National Wildlife Refuge) in the Northeast corner of Alaska? First of all, the oil will be drilled on the coastal plain, so unless you hunt geese off shore in freezing arctic waters I think you will be ok. The ANWR province will yield up to 1.5 million barrels of oil per day. According to the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Resources that 1.5 million barrels, coupled with the Interior Departments estimate on future Gulf of Mexico production, could replace the amount of oil we import from Saudi Arabia, Venezuela and Iraq combined. I, for one, think that being less reliant on other countries for our energy sources is a good thing. Besides, how many people do you think goose hunt that area?
