The Alaska Board of Game will hold a statewide meeting in Anchorage Nov. 10-17 to consider sweeping changes proposed in a variety of hunting regulations.
The proposed changes cover 79 pages but include proposals to change how and when Dall sheep can be taken, rules on hunting the same day as flying, and the option for residents to “guide”close relatives.
You can read the complete list of proposals at the link below. Alaska allows anyone to submit regulation change proposals, for the Board to consider. Changes which the Board approves become the framework, for the Department of Fish and Game to enforce and use in managing wildlife resources.
Comments are being taken until Friday Oct. 27 on the proposals.
“Comment on the proposed regulations including the potential costs to private persons of complying with the proposed changes by submitting written comments, limited to no more than 100 single sided or 50 double sided pages, to the Alaska Board of Game, Boards Support Section at P.O. Box 115526, Juneau, AK 99811-5526. Comments can also be submitted online at www.boardofgame.adfg.alaska.gov, by fax to (907) 465-6094, or emailed to email@example.com (PDF format only).
