Call for Proposals to Change Federal Subsistence Hunting and Trapping Regulations


The Federal Subsistence Board is accepting proposals through March 29, 2013 to change Federal regulations for the subsistence harvest of wildlife on Federal public lands for the 2014-2016 regulatory years (July 1, 2014-June 30, 2016).

The Board will consider proposals to change Federal hunting and trapping seasons, harvest limits, methods of harvest, and customary and traditional use determinations. The Board will also accept proposals for individual customary and traditional use determinations from residents of national park and national monument resident zone communities, or those who already hold a Section 13.440 subsistence use permit.

Federal public lands include national wildlife refuges; national parks, monuments and preserves; national forests; national wild and scenic rivers; and national conservation and recreation areas. These lands also include Bureau of Land Management areas that are not part of the national conservation system. Federal subsistence regulations do not apply on State of Alaska lands, private lands, military lands, Native allotments, or Federal lands selected by the State of Alaska or Native corporations.
