This afternoon at the Game Board Meeting, Board member Dick Burley requested that the Board reconsider Proposal #85, the one requesting that Residents of Alaska be allowed to begin hunting sheep on August 8, two days before non-residents, and be allowed to hunt until September 25, 5 days longer than non-residents. This proposal was considered yesterday, and failed to pass.
This time, Mr. Burley requested it be reconsidered, but with several admendments, and after a round of discussion, the proposal passed on a vote of 6-1! Here are the details:
o This is for Region III only
o It will not take effect until Fall 2009
o Does not include the Tok Management Area or the Delta Controlled Use Area
o Resident season will be August 10-Sept 20
Non-Resident season will be August 12-Sept 20
