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, including hunting and fishing, on lands of the Refuge System when we find that the activity is compatible and appropriate with the purpose for which the refuge was VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:05 Apr 16, 2015 Jkt 235001 established. The Recreation Act allows the use of refuges for public recreation when the use is not inconsistent or does not interfere with the primary purpose(s) of the refuge. We administer 373 hunting programs and 271 fishing programs on 408 refuges and wetland management districts. We only collect user information at about 20 percent of these refuges. Information that we plan to collect will help us: • Administer and monitor hunting and fishing programs on refuges. • Distribute hunting and fishing permits in a fair and equitable manner to eligible participants. We use nine application and report forms associated with hunting and fishing on refuges. We may not allow all opportunities on all refuges; therefore, we developed different forms to PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 simplify the process and avoid confusion for applicants. The currently approved forms are available online at http://www.fws.gov/forms/. Not all refuges will use each form and some refuges may collect the identical information in a nonform format. We 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 issue application forms for specific periods, usually seasonally or annually. • FWS Form 3–2354 (Quota Deer Hunt Application). • FWS Form 3–2355 (Waterfowl Lottery Application). • FWS Form 3–2356 (Big/Upland Game Hunt Application).
