Tier Two subsistence harvest regulations upheld by Supreme Court

The Alaska Supreme Court today upheld the 2003 changes to the state’s Tier Two subsistence harvest regulations. Tier Two restrictions go into effect when biologists determine there is less than enough game in a particular area for all subsistence users. Girdwood resident Kenneth Manning originally filed suit to overturn the law on state constitutional grounds after being denied a caribou hunting permit in 2000.
