A public hearing is scheduled for 5:00–7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 25, 2019, at the Prince of Wales Vocational and Technical Education Center, 6565 Boundary Road, Klawock, to receive public testimony on a Temporary Special Action request received by the Federal Subsistence Board (Board).
Temporary Special Action request WSA19-02, submitted by the Southeast Alaska Subsistence Regional Advisory Council, requests that the Board change the sealing period for wolf hunting and trapping from “within 14 days of harvest” to “within 30 days of the end of the season,” and remove language referencing a “combined Federal-State harvest quota” for wolves in Unit 2. These changes are in line with recent changes implemented by the Alaska Board of Game.
At this meeting, the public will have an opportunity to provide testimony to representatives of the Federal Subsistence Management Program. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend this meeting in person or by calling the telephone number provided below. When prompted, enter the passcode.
