From Sarah Behr:
The Board of Game is going to meet on November 18th and will consider several topics concerning the 40 mile caribou herd/hunt. Of note, they will vote on whether or not to accept Agenda Change Requests at this meeting, which ask the Board to review proposals outside of their regular cycle. You can find the meeting announcement here.
I have submitted an Agenda Change Request, which proposes to expand Fish and Game’s ability to utilize the targeted hunt option for the entire fall and winter registration hunts and would, I hope, ensure that the hunt continues to be sustainable and also reduce hunter congestion/chaos.
It will be available here tomorrow.
I can also send you a copy of the proposal directly.
The Board will accept written public comment for this meeting. If you feel like the proposal I submitted would result in positive changes, please write the Board of Game and encourage them to accept my Agenda Change Request. Speak to why it should be accepted/what will happen if the issue isn’t addressed now (instead of in 2023, which is when the board is scheduled to discuss the 40 mile herd next). If my Agenda Change Request is accepted, the proposal would be reviewed and voted on at the Board’s January or March 2021 meeting. There would be another comment period about the merits of the proposal prior to this meeting as well.
Public comment can be submitted here.
It can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for comment submission is November 12, 2020.
Thank you very much!
