FAIRBANKS - The Alaska Board of Game has approved another large-scale cow moose hunt near Delta Junction.
The game board on Thursday approved the plan from the Department of Fish and Game to harvest 400 cow moose from Game Management Unit 20D.
Hunters killed 500 cows there last season, which state wildlife biologists said stabilized a moose population that is growing too fast.
Area management biologist Steve DuBois said despite the successful hunt, there is still a surplus of cows on the land.
The game board is in the midst of an 11-day meeting in Fairbanks, which is scheduled to end today.
