The board has made three recommendations regarding the proposed regulation change. The proposed change would make it unlawful to harvest grizzly during the spring hunting season within 30 metres of the centre line of the highway in southwest Yukon. The minister has up to 60 days to respond formally to the board, with an option of a 30-day extension. (YG news release)
