Bear hunting to end early on Admiralty Island

Bear season on Admiralty Island will wrap up at 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, according to an emergency order issued by the Alaska Department of Fish & Game.

ADF&G justified the early closure by stating in its order that the maximum harvest guideline for Admiralty Island is 13 males or three females. By Friday, three sows had been reported killed on Admiralty to ADF&G.

The season had originally been scheduled to run through Dec. 31.

The order also halts brown bear hunting on smaller islands adjacent to Admiralty, but does not affect the season in the remainder of Game Management Unit 4, which encompasses Admiralty Island.
