The public testimony period of the Alaska Board of Game’s ten-day meeting in Fairbanks was dominated by hunters whose concerns are centered around more controls on predators like wolves and bear.

The Saturday meeting was dominated for the most part by hunters voicing concerns over the need to boost caribou and moose populations. They want more effort on the part of the Board to reduce the numbers of wolves and bear in order to increase the numbers of caribou and moose.

In all, the Board of Game is concidering 167 proposals to changes in hunting regulations for their state.
