Happy New Year! We will be holding an informational meeting and get-together in Fairbanks on Saturday, January 21 from 2 to 5 pm. Location and directions are below.

Guest speaker Mary Bishop will give a 20-minute presentation at 3 pm on Indian Trust Lands issues. RHAK Executive Director Mark Richards and RHAK Board member Tom Lamal will give an overview of RHAK's short and long-term goals, an update on Board of Game meetings and appointments, our legislative strategy this session, and in general put members together, get to know each other, and discuss ideas on how we can all help achieve a true resident hunting priority that provides sustainable hunting opportunities for future generations of Alaskans.
