Comment period extended on wildlife restrictions

The National Park Service is extending the public comment period related to temporary restrictions on certain sport hunting practices in several national preserves in Alaska. Public comments on these provisions will be taken through April 5.

The restrictions generally mirror those in place last year. These restrictions are in response to decisions by the Alaska Board of Game to liberalize hunting seasons and methods for wolves, coyotes, and bears. The board has also rejected proposals by the National Park Service to exempt preserves from the state regulations, an action that would have made federal restrictions unnecessary.

The extension was requested by the State of Alaska. Comments in writing should be sent to 240 W. 5th Avenue, Anchorage, AK 99501 or emailed to

The full text of the restrictions for each affected national preserve is posted at
