If you are into archery hunting then you need to be aware of what the MAT valley AC has done with proposal #23.

We are asking for a change. We agree that something must be done to increase sheep numbers within this unit. Permits were once 120 and now they are going to be 80. We have ask that they increase these permits back up to 120 by issueing 40 archery permits.

It will be a up hill battle in a few members of the BOG are against these "special" hunts. I would ask that you get with your local AC and make sure when they have there 5 minutes that they mention this proposal and support getting more hunting opportunities for archers.

You can see more about this proposal since I submitted this a week ago on the Alaska Game Management thread.
