Estimated Annual Number of Respondents: 396. PO 00000 Frm 00088 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Estimated Total Annual Responses: 396. Estimated Time Per Response: 15 minutes.

Abstract: We are proposing to collect information to help us evaluate commercial guide services on our national wildlife refuges in the State of Alaska (State). The National Wildlife Refuge Administration Act of 1966, as amended (16 U.S.C. 668dd-ee), authorizes us to permit uses, including commercial visitor services, on national wildlife refuges when we find the activity to be compatible with the purposes for which the refuge was established. With the objective of making available a variety of quality visitor services for wildlife-dependent recreation on National Wildlife Refuge System lands, we issue permits for commercial guide services, including big game hunting, sport fishing, wildlife viewing, river trips, and other guided activities. We plan to use FWS Form 32349 (Alaska Guide Service Evaluation) as a method to: (1) Monitor the quality of services provided by commercial guides. (2) Gauge client satisfaction with the services. (3) Assess the impacts of the activity on refuge resources. The client is the best source of information on the quality of commercial guiding services. We plan to collect: (1) Client name. (2) Guide name(s). (3) Type of guided activity. (4) Dates and location of guided activity. (5) Information on the services received such as the client’s expectations, safety, environmental impacts, and client’s overall satisfaction. We will encourage respondents to provide any additional comments that they wish regarding the guide service or refuge experience, and ask whether or not they wish to be contacted for additional information. The above information, in combination with State-required guide activity reports and contacts with guides and clients in the field, will provide a comprehensive method for monitoring permitted commercial guide activities. A regular program of client evaluation will help refuge managers detect potential problems with guide services so that we can take corrective actions promptly. In addition, we will use this information during the competitive selection process for big game and sport fishing guides to evaluate an applicant’s E:\FR\FM\08AUN1.SGM 08AUN1
