Can’t blame snomo clubs
for holiday hunt concerns

Industry officials showed up at the first public hearing in Eagle River last week on proposed changes to the deer seasons and other regulations, changes that are in response to a Deer Trustee Report and modifications made by a stakeholder Action Team.
Hearing attendees were told by state officials that a holiday hunt isn’t being proposed for management units north of Highway 64,
