2013-2014 Refuge-Specific Hunting and Sport Fishing Regulations; 
Correction

AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION: Correcting amendments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, published a final rule 
in the Federal Register on March 17, 2014, to amend the refuge-specific 
regulations for certain refuges that pertain to migratory game bird 
hunting, upland game hunting, big game hunting, and sport fishing for 
the 2013-2014 season. Inadvertently, we made two technical errors in 
our regulatory text for Arapaho National Wildlife Refuge in Colorado. 
This action makes the necessary corrections to the regulations for that 
refuge.

DATES: This correction is effective April 18, 2014.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Brian Salem, (703) 358-2397.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In a final rule that published March 17, 
2014 (79 FR 14809), we amended the refuge-specific regulations for 
certain refuges that pertain to migratory game bird hunting, upland 
game hunting, big game hunting, and sport fishing for the 2013-2014 
season. The Arapaho National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) in Colorado is one 
of the refuges for which we published amended regulations. In the final 
rule, we inadvertently required that hunters may only use shotguns as 
the legal method of take for migratory game birds and upland game on 
Arapaho NWR. This requirement is inconsistent with Colorado State 
regulations, which allow take by both shotgun and falconry. Therefore, 
we are correcting the regulations for Arapaho NWR to provide that take 
of migratory game birds and upland game must comply with State 
regulations.
