State Game Board meeting continues in Fairbanks

The state board of game continued its Fairbanks meeting today at the Alpine Lodge.

The board is looking at proposals to change hunting and trapping regulations that would affect the interior.

The meeting started last Friday, and was set to go for as long as ten days if necessary.

Today, they were working on proposals that would have an impact in the McGrath area.

Two of them concerned the issue of predator control.

Fish and Game Spokesperson Cathie Harms said “They have re-authorized two predation control programs, one in 19D East and the other in 19A. These programs have been on the books for several years and they're starting to show great promise for the moose populations and the people in those areas and the board wanted to make sure that those programs could be continued.”
