After a recent thread on here I was curious how many hunters would shoot a male of any species that was with its mother?
This is a gray area in the regulations and Alaska administrative code.
The legal definition of a "bull moose" is a male moose
The legal definition of a "calf" is moose, caribou, elk, muskox, or bison less than 12 months old
The two definitions kinda overlap making them ambiguous to us hunters. This is where it comes down to your own hunting ethics and if you are willing to deal with the Troopers and or court if it came down to their understanding being different than yours.
There are plenty of general season, registration, and draw hunts that allow the hunter to harvest/kill a male of the species with no antler or horn restrictions. Some of these come right out and say no taking of calf's that are with cows and some do not. Then again they do not say that you can take a calf with a cow either.....
This is not directed at subsistence hunts/hunters and or predator control hunts/hunters.
