Guam - There's still no response from officials at Andersen Air Force Base about how they plan to deal with the wild deer and pig population after ceasing all hunting on the main base and at Northwest Field. About a dozen hunters gathered at the University of Guam last night to get a safety briefing and update on what they are still allowed to do up north.

Hunters are only allowed to conduct archery hunting at the property adjacent to NCTAMS. Minors will also no longer be allowed to hunt on Air Force property.

Volunteer conservation officer Ignacio Camacho led last night's discussion, saying, "The second briefing this month has shown a change in some of the previous policies at Andersen, and it's important for the public to know, the requirements and changes made at Andersen as it relates to safety and hunting areas available and procedures that public have to follow in order to hunt at Andersen."

The changes are a result of the increased military presence at Andersen. Nearly 300 hunters are affected by the changes. Andersen will continue to host weekly safety briefing Thursday's at UOG's Natural and Applied Science Building in Room 127 at 6:30pm.
