I was absolutely thrilled to see two snowy owls at Smithville today.....a first for me. 
 
I was stunned to learn that Alaska residents may hunt them without limit as long as they are used for food or clothing.  I have no objection to hunting, but willfully killing one of these creatures is obscene.
