I agree. The issues are frequently lumped together and it would be more useful to discuss them separately. The hunting is very closely controlled and the season is very short. I didn't mean to conflate the impact of climate change with the relatively small impact hunting has.

Narwhal are an excellent source of vitamin C in an otherwise scurvy inducing culinary landscape. Inuit in Greenland have special dispensation to hunt narwhal for the meat also called mattak. Some use traditional hunting techniques like seal bladder bouys tied to hand made spears. This is controversal as the current population of narwhal is estimated to be less than 100,000 with some regional populations being more impacted by hunting and climate issues.

Reminds me of the summer I washed dishes at a cafeteria in Medora, ND. If you're ever traveling cross country during the summer, I highly recommend stopping for the Medora Musical. The historical sites are also pretty cool. Lots of Teddy Roosevelt stuff.
