Annual Federal Subsistence Migratory Bird Harvest Opens, April 2nd

The annual spring/summer federal subsistence migratory bird harvest regulations for 2018 will take effect on April 2.

These regulations allow for the continuation of customary and traditional subsistence uses of migratory birds in Alaska and prescribe regional information on when and where the harvesting of birds may occur. These regulations were developed under a co- management process involving the Service, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, and Alaska Native representatives.
