The extension was requested by the State of Alaska, according to a press release issued by the National Park Service.
The proposed restrictions mirror those in place last year and are in response to decisions made by the Alaska Board of Game to liberalize hunting seasons and methods for hunting wolves, coyotes and bears. The board rejected proposals by the Park Service to exempt preserves from the state regulations.
The full text of the restrictions for each affected national preserve is posted atwww.nps.gov/akso/management/compendiums.cfm.
Written comments should be mailed to 240 W. Fifth Avenue, Anchorage, AK 99501 or emailed toAKRO_compendium@nps.gov.
