    Here in Canada, natives are granted that right "automatically". Those in the far-reaches of Canada are also granted that right as well if they are in the areas that are fly-in only during the summer and drive-in on the winter-roads.

    Anyone that has "easy access" to food, meaning living in a town (or close to a town) with regular deliveries of food are not granted Subsistence Fishing / Dip Netting Permits ...

    The Nez Perce and Coeur D'Alene Indians here in Idaho also have those rights automatically. They are usually my hookup for some fresh smoked salmon.
