    Default 2008 Sheep Hunt

    Gents - saw a while back a thread discussing sheep season opening sooner for residents? Is this true or did I misunderstand? Regs say 10 Aug as in years past...Need to buy airline tickets for trip up in Aug...thanks.

    Default no early start this season

    It did pass and then was voted against. Maybe in the future, but not this season.

    Yes, it happens next year. Still opens the 10th but the 12th for NR's. Only the northern part of the state though if I remember right.

    Default Far as I know the proposal failed

    Guys, as far as I know, proposal 85 to open sheep season up north two days earlier for residents failed. It's the first proposal listed in the BOG meeting summary:
    http://www.boards.adfg.state.ak.us/g...rch08-summ.pdf

    I was there at the meeting; they initially passed it, then later changed their minds. Won't go into why, cuz it would likely stir the pot...but a proposal that fails isn't up for reconsideration the next year.

    Hmmm, I thought they rejected it, and then revisited it and passed it. I thought I read it in official documentation. Time for some research. Thanks Mark.

    I think it was rejected, brought back to the table, passed, and then it looks like the guides got to the BOG and was rejected again! I don't think it will happen in 09 either. The BOG had some interesting votes this last meeting!
