Alaska Board of Game Announces the 2018–2019 Proposal Book

The Alaska Board of Game's 2018–2019 Proposal Book for the Southcentral and Southeast regions is now available. The book contains more than 140 proposals that primarily impact hunting and trapping regulations for the areas of Southeast Alaska, Anchorage, Kodiak, and the Kenai Peninsula. The book also includes some proposals for other regions such as annual reauthorization proposals for antlerless moose seasons and brown bear tag fee exemptions. Proposals have been submitted by members of the public, local fish and game advisory committees, organizations and agencies, and the Department of Fish and Game. Proposals are available online at www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=gameboard.proposalbook.

The board is scheduled to address the proposals at the following meetings:

Southeast Region
(GMUs 1–5)
January 11–15, 2019
Sons of Norway Hall, Petersburg
Comment Deadline: December 28, 2018

Southcentral Region
(GMUs 6–8, 14C and 15)
March 15–19, 2019
Anchorage Sheraton
Comment Deadline: March 1, 2019

The board strongly encourages the interested public to provide comments on the proposals on any effects the proposed changes would have on particular activities and interests to help inform the board's decision-making process. Detailed information about submitting written comments and presenting oral testimony is provided in the proposal book.

Prior to board meetings, local fish and game advisory committees will also meet to formulate recommendations on proposals for the board's consideration. Advisory committee meetings are public forums and provide additional opportunity for public involvement. More information about advisory committees is online at: www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=process.advisory.
