As required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 and as part of our continuing efforts to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, we invite the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on this IC. We may not conduct or sponsor and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. DATES: You must submit comments on or before June 23, 2008.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: To request additional information about this IC, contact Hope Grey by mail, fax, or e-mail (see ADDRESSES) or by telephone at (703) 358–2482. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 1966 (16 U.S.C. 668dd–668ee), as amended, (Administration Act) and the Refuge Recreation Act of 1962 (16 U.S.C. 460k– 460k–4) (Recreation Act) govern the administration and uses of national wildlife refuges and wetland management districts. The Administration Act consolidated all the different refuge areas into a single ‘‘Refuge System.’’ It also authorizes us to permit public uses on lands of the National Wildlife Refuge System and identifies six priority public uses on national wildlife refuges, including hunting and fishing. The Administration Act instructs us that these uses are ‘‘legitimate and appropriate general public use of the System, directly related to the mission of the System and the purposes of many refuges, and which generally fosters refuge management and through which PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the American public can develop an appreciation for fish and wildlife.’’ The Administration Act also directs us to: ‘‘provide increased opportunities for families to experience compatible wildlife-dependent recreation, particularly opportunities for parents and their children to safely engage in traditional outdoor activities, such as fishing and hunting.’’ The Recreation Act allows the use of refuges for public recreation when it is not inconsistent or does not interfere with the primary purpose(s) of the refuge. There are 389 national wildlife refuges where we administer hunting and/or fishing programs. We only collect user information at about 20 percent of these refuges. Information that we plan to collect will help us to: (1) Administer and monitor hunting and fishing programs on refuges. (2) Distribute hunting and fishing permits in a fair and equitable manner to eligible participants. We are proposing nine new application and report forms associated with hunting and fishing on refuges. We may not allow all opportunities on all refuges; therefore, we require different forms for each. Not all refuges will use each form and some refuges may collect the information in a nonform format. We will use the following application forms when we assign areas, dates, and/ or types of hunts via a drawing because of limited resources, high demand, or when a permit is needed to hunt. We will issue application forms for specific periods, usually seasonally or annually. (1) FWS Form 3–2354 (Quota Deer Hunt Application). (2) FWS Form 3–2355 (Waterfowl Lottery Application). (3) FWS Form 3–2356 (Big Game Hunt Application). (4) FWS Form 3–2357 (Migratory Bird Hunt Application). (5) FWS Form 3–2358 (Fishing/ Shrimping/Crabbing Application) We plan to collect information on: (1) Applicant (name, address, phone number) so that we can notify applicants of their selection. (2) User preferences (dates, areas, method) so that we can distribute users equitably. (3) Whether or not the applicant is applying for a special opportunity for disabled or youth hunters. (4) Age of youth hunter(s) so that we can establish eligibility. We will ask users to report on their success after their experience so that we can evaluate hunt quality and resource impacts. We will use the following activity reports, which we will distribute during appropriate seasons, as E:\FR\FM\22APN1.SGM 22APN1
