Here is how we can change the permit lottery release date. Contact the Alaska Governor's office via the web site and send an email or make a phone call voicing your opinion/complaint, he is the ultimate top boss over AF&G and he/she is an elected official by us (the people). Don't waste your response to this thread, go to the Alaska governor's web site and type an email. If he cares he'll have the right people straightening it out, and the date will get pushed up. If he doesn't care, well were all registered voters (bottom-line).
