Area Wildlife Biologist


The Alaska Board of Game authorized a winter moose hunting season of up to 14 days for antlered bulls only in Unit 17A. This period is set when weather and snow conditions are expected to be adequate to allow hunters to access hunting areas. Aerial surveys during
March 2011 indicated a population of at least 1,166 moose in Unit 17A. High productivity and moose calf survival since then provides information to indicate that moose numbers in Unit 17A are believed to be sufficient to conduct this 14-day, antlered bulls only hunt.
