Over 70 proposals asking to change hunting and trapping regulations in game management units in Cordova, the Kenai Peninsula, Kodiak and Anchorage will be considered during the Board of Game meeting in Anchorage March 14-19.

The game board said oral reports from agency staff will be heard on March 14, with public testimony to begin on March 15, once those oral reports are complete. The meeting was initially scheduled for March 15-19 but was changed due to the number of proposals and other agenda items.

The board will also consider proposals for other regions, including reauthorizations for antlerless moose hunts and brown bear tag fees.

The proposals were submitted by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, local fish and game advisory committees, other agencies and the public.
