How Alaska's Hunting Regulations Are Made
Alaska's public process for setting hunting regulations is facilitated by the Board of Game, which meets two to three times annually. Its seven members are appointed by the governor and confirmed by the legislature.
The Board sets each meeting's agenda but any individual or group in the state can propose a change in a hunting regulation or a new regulation.
Local fish and game advisory committees, of which there are currently 81, are made up of elected local citizens who meet to discuss and make recommendations on wildlife issues that come before the Board of Game.
