Barrow residents meet with Federal Fish and Wildlife Service

Barrow residents gathered this week for a meeting with representatives from the U.S. fish and wildlife service. The federal agency is on the north slope taking comment about the changes being proposed to the migratory bird subsistence harvest regulations for spring and summer 2009. Proposed restrictions ranging from no hunting within one mile of roadways to closures of subsistence hunts if the regional director deemed it necessary were presented.
