Spurned plaintiff in Yukon–Charley Rivers NPres water rights case says he’ll appeal to Supreme Court

National Park Service nemesis John Sturgeon now uses a perfectly legal airboat to hunt the remote and wild Nation River near the Canadian border in Eastern Alaska, but his fight with the feds to use an  environmentally friendlier hovercraft is alive and growing.

What began years ago as a somewhat pointless, rules-are-rules dispute between a group of park rangers and an elderly moose hunter in an out-of-the-way corner of North American only a handful of people ever visit, appears today on the verge of turning into a huge state’s rights battle focused on who owns Alaska’s water.
