USFWS online 3-186A database is down

According to the USFWS, their online reporting database for falconry 3-186A forms is down with no estimate of when it will be back up. NAFA has stated that a copy of completed paper forms should be mailed to the regional USFWS offices, but the Albuquerque office (our region) has said that is unnecessary because they have no filing systems to manage those forms anymore. I have reached out to the main USFWS office in Washington to get some clear direction on this. For the time being, our recommendation is that you should take or mail completed 3-186A forms to your regional AZGFD office. They will maintain your file. Once a new reporting DB is in place, we will update you with the USFWS directions for reporting. Thanks Charlie Kaiser AFA President
