ADF&G Emergency Order Changes Community Hunt Moose Bag Limit in Subunit 13A
(Glennallen) – The Copper Basin Community Subsistence Harvest moose hunt (CM300) bag limit in Game Management Subunit 13A will change by emergency order effective 12:01 a.m., Wednesday, August 14, 2013, from one bull moose to one bull moose with spike-fork antlers or 50-inch antlers or antlers with four or more brow tines on at least one side.
Prior to the hunt, a quota of 16 “any-bull” moose was established for the CM300 Copper Basin Community Subsistence Harvest hunt in Subunit 13A. This limit was established based on sustainable harvest principles and current population estimates. “Any-bulls” are bull moose that do not meet state general hunt antler restrictions. The established quota of “any-bull” moose for Subunit 13A has been met at this time.
Copper Basin community moose hunters may still hunt in Subunit 13A through the end of the regularly scheduled season (September 20), however, all bulls taken in this area beginning Wednesday, August 14, with a community harvest ticket must meet state general hunt antler restrictions (spike-fork antlers or 50-inch antlers or antlers with four or more brow tines on one side). Community moose hunters are still required to follow all established salvage requirements for the Community Harvest hunts through the end of the season.
Community hunters are encouraged to keep checking the Community Subsistence Harvest hunt hotline (822-6789) should “any-bull” quotas be met in other portions of the community hunt area and additional emergency orders issued.
