Board of Game Meeting to be Held in Fairbanks, February 14–23, 2014

The Alaska Board of Game (BOG) will meet February 14–23, 2014, in Fairbanks, Alaska, at the Alpine Lodge located at 4920 Dale Road. During this ten-day public meeting, the BOG will consider nearly 90 proposals concerning changes to hunting and trapping regulations for the Interior Region (Game Management Units [GMU] 12, 19, 20, 21, 24, 25, 26B, and 26C).

Proposals have been submitted by the Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G), local fish and game advisory committees, and the general public seeking adjustments to hunting and trapping regulations for areas including McGrath, Galena, Tok, Delta, Fairbanks, and Northeast Alaska. Most of the proposals to be addressed by the BOG concern hunting and trapping season dates and bag limits. The proposals, along with other meeting materials, are available at the BOG meeting information website listed below.

The BOG meeting convenes Friday, February 14, at 8:30 a.m., beginning with presentations by ADF&G on various topics. Upon conclusion of the presentations, the BOG will take oral testimony. Anyone wishing to testify before the BOG must sign up at the meeting location before Saturday, February 15, at 10:30 a.m. Public testimony will continue until everyone who has signed up has been given the opportunity to be heard. Deliberations on the proposals will follow public testimony and continue through the remainder of the meeting.

All portions of the meeting are open to the public, and a live audio stream is intended to be available on the BOG website at www.boardofgame.adfg.alaska.gov. Other meeting materials, including the agenda and roadmap order of proposals, list of staff reports, and public and agency comments on proposal, can be viewed online at: www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=gameboard.meetinginfo.

Written comments will be accepted on specific proposals for the meeting up until the time the proposal is deliberated. During the meeting, written comments limited to ten pages single sided (or five pages double sided) in length, may be submitted by hand delivery at any time if 20 copies are provided. Individuals not attending the meeting can submit comments by fax to (907) 465-6094.
