ADF&G Emergency Order changing community hunt moose bag limit in Unit 13E

(Glennallen) – The Moose Copper Basin Community Subsistence Harvest hunt (CM300) bag limit in Game Management Unit 13E, will change by Emergency Order 04-07-12 at 11:59 pm, Thursday, September 13th, 2012 from one bull moose, to one bull moose with spike-fork antlers or 50” antlers or antlers with 4 or more brow tines on one side.

Prior to the hunt, it was established that up to 13 “any-bull” moose could be taken in Unit 13E in the Copper Basin Community Subsistence Harvest hunt (CM300). 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 limit of “any-bull” moose for Unit 13E has been met. The established limits of “any-bull” moose for Unit 13A, Unit 13B, and Unit 13D have already been met.

Copper Basin community moose hunters may still hunt in Unit 13E through the end of the regularly scheduled season (September 20th) however, all bulls taken in this area after Thursday September 13th with a community harvest ticket must meet state general hunt antler restrictions (spike-fork antlers or 50” antlers or antlers with 4 or more brow tines on one side). Community moose hunters must still follow all established salvage requirements for this hunt through the end of the season.

Community hunters are encouraged to keep checking the Community Subsistence Harvest hunt hotline (907-822-6789) should any-bull quotas be met in other portions of the community hunt area and additional emergency orders issued.
