The Board of Game held an emergency meeting yesterday regarding changing the Unit 26B grizzly season and permitting. ADFG is concerned about northeast Alaska muskox population and grizzly predation.
So far, what I know is that the Board did approve a change to the season start date. The new start date for both residents and non-residents for grizzly in 26B is August 10th, which coincides with the beginning of sheep season.
For residents, it will be an open general season hunt.
20 additional non-resident permits will be provided over the counter.
I am waiting on more specific info and for it to be posted online.
