Board of Game Hosting Town Hall Meeting This Afternoon

The Alaska Board of Game is holding a town hall meeting to wrap up their first day of meetings at the Kenai Visitors Center. One issue on the minds of many are the proposals surrounding aerial predator control. We spoke to Board Chair Ted Spraker of Kenai…

 

Spraker: “I’m anxious to listen to the public and look at the information provided by the department, and I’ll kind of develop my position as we go along. I can see both sides of the argument. One of the things that I have to make very clear, we have an intensive management law that the legislature passed back in 1994, and it obligates the board to address some kind of activity to increase moose numbers, we if reduce hunting opportunities, and in 15A, because the population estimate is so low, and the harvest objective is not even close to be met, the board is obligated to do something.”

The board will meet beginning at 8:30 each day through Tuesday March 19th.
