Alaska antlerless moose hunts open Monday

Posted: Friday, January 07, 2011

FAIRBANKS — The Alaska Department of Fish & Game is aiming for a cow moose harvest of about 200 during a two-month winter season for antlerless moose on the Tanana Flats and in the Alaska Range foothills.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports the hunt, which is open by registration permit, opens Monday and runs through Feb. 28, or when the harvest quota in a specific zone is reached.

The purpose of the winter hunt is to keep the moose population in game management unit 20A south of Fairbanks from growing bigger.

Biologists conducted a moose count in unit 20A in December and estimate the number of moose in the region at 15,000.

The population objective is 10,000 to 12,000.
