Fish and Gamehunt reports due
Sound off on the important issues at
JUNEAU - The Alaska Department of Fish and Game reminds all 2007 permit hunt participants to return their required reports.
Fish and Game relies on permit reporting to manage wildlife populations and plan area hunts. All hunts managed by a permit system (registration, drawing and Tier II) have mandatory reporting requirements.
As a reminder, the majority of moose hunts are now closed, and reports are due. Mountain goat and brown bear hunting seasons and the waterfowl season will end soon. Permits will be due shortly after the end of the hunting seasons.
Those who fail to return permit report cards or contact the Douglas Wildlife Office to report, will not be eligible for 2008 permit hunts for any species, statewide, and they may receive a citation from the Alaska Bureau of Wildlife Enforcement.
For more information, contact the Douglas Fish and Game office at 465-4265.
Avalanche training available
JUNEAU - The Search and Rescue community has juggled the schedule for spring semester at the University of Alaska Southeast in order to offer a community level 1 and level 2 avalanche training. Level 1 will be Jan. 22 through Feb. 3. Level 2 will be Feb. 5-17 in Juneau.
Both courses will have weekday evening classroom sessions and weekend day field sessions for two consecutive weeks. Sign-ups are through UAS. Be sure to register early, as they were added due to strong demand; they will fill fast.
For more information, contact Bill Glude at the Southeast Alaska Avalanche Center at 586-5606, or visit www.avalanche.org/~seaac/Pages1/AboutUsSAAC05_06.html.
