The Alaska Board of Game today announced that it is extending its upcoming winter meeting by one day.  The board is now scheduled to meet January 27-30 in Anchorage at the 4th Avenue Theatre to consider over 50 proposals pertaining to statewide hunting and the use of game.
Proposals have been submitted by the Department of Fish and Game, state advisory committees, and the general public seeking adjustments to statewide hunting and trapping regulations applying to all Game Management Units. 
The deadline for providing written comments to ensure that they are included in the Board of Game members' meeting binders is 5:00 pm on Friday, January 13, although written comments on specific proposals are accepted up until the board begins deliberating on the proposal.
