Fairbanks AC Game Subcommittee Meeting
Here's a chance for us Northern Folk to be able to chime in on the upcoming proposals.
"The Fairbanks Fish and Game Advisory Game Sub-Committee will be holding a public meeting in Fairbanks on Wednesday January 28,2009 at 6:00 p.m. at the Fish and Game Farmhouse Conference Room at 1300 College Road.
The Game Sub-Committee will be going over South Central Game Proposals and drafting recommendations for the full committee meeting on Feb 11, 2009"
I believe the Delta Jct. AC meeting is on the same day at 6:00 pm at the C. Center behind the high school, I'll check on the date to make sure. They will also be holding a full day workshop here in Delta on Feb 7th
This sub-committee meeting will not only be discussing the proposals for the Southeast BOG meeting, but will also be discussing the recommendatons that arose from the recent meeting of the four local AC's regarding the antlerless hunt reauthorization for GMU20A as well as the reauthorization for other Interior units. Then, as mentioned, the sub-committees recommendation will go to the full AC at the meeting on the 11th.
I encourage as many of you as possible to come to the sub-committee meeting, as that is where the real "work" and discussion takes place on these important issues. Please note that the meeting starts at 6pm, instead of the usual 7pm.
Turns out I couldn't make the meeting because of a different meeting I had. Anyone have any info of interest?
Meeting to be continued
The Sub-Committee only made it through about 2/3 of the proposals that are going before the Board in March. They are going to continue the meeting this coming Wednesday, the 4th. So, if anybody still has a passion about any of those proposals, there is still an opportunity to be heard. The meeting is in the same place--at 6pm in the small white building next to the Creamers Field barn.
Be advised though, that they are not discussing and making recommendations on all of the initiatives. They are only looking at the 75, or so, that are statewide proposals, proposals affecting GMU's up here, or have an impact on hunters from this area.
Thanks for the info. I've been looking over the proposals. Man, lots of stuff to wade through. Unfortunately I have a meeting this wednesday so can't make it.
