Attention Black Bear Baiters

During the November 2010 Alaska Board of Game meeting in Ketchikan, a regulation was adopted that requires that all black bear baiting permit holders provide GPS coordinates to the department for each bait site before a permit will be issued.

In Units 1 – 5, a person may not establish a black bear baiting station or place bait at a baiting station without first providing the location, in a global positioning system (GPS) format of latitude and longitude, of the baiting station on a form provided by the Department of Fish and Game. The GPS location of the baiting station will be provided to the department at the time of site registration and must be provided to the department before bait is placed at the site.

Black bear bait site GPS coordinates (latitude & longitude) are required before a permit will be issued.

Please contact the Douglas wildlife office for additional assistance and information at (907) 465-4265.
