The Alaska Board of Game will meet March 14-18 in Anchorage at the Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center, located at 600 West 7th Avenue, according to a release from the Alaska Department of Fish & Game.
During this five-day public meeting, the BOG will consider nearly 50 hunting- and trapping-related proposals. The majority of proposals concern changes to statewide provisions and a few concern changes to hunting regulations for specific regions.
Proposals have been submitted by the ADF&G, local fish and game advisory committees and the general public seeking adjustments to statewide provisions for hunting and trapping regulations. The public is encouraged to review the proposal topics available on the BOG website at http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=gameboard.meetinginfo.

Anyone wishing to testify before the BOG must sign up at the meeting location before 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 15. 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.
