Update on Guide Concession Program planning
For the last two years, the Alaska Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has been considering plans to implement a Guide Concession Program that would limit the number of contracting guides that could legally operate on state lands.
Currently, the state of Alaska has no limits to the number of guides that can operate on state lands, and there has been an overcrowding of guides that is causing conflicts and concerns for game populations.
Public meetings were held, and DNR has been taking comments from the public on the Guide Concession Program. The public comment period ended on March 31.
