This September I am headed down to Admirality Island for what is looking like an awesome Bear and deer hunt. Admirality Island is a "One Bear every 4 regulatory year" area.
The "Gray" area -
Hunting licenses run from Jan 1 - Dec 31 yearly...right?
Griz tags run from July 1 - Jun 30 yearly....right?
If the above is right, then I should be able to shoot a Griz NOW in the Unit 20 area (1 per regulatory year), then go down and shoot one on Admirality Island in September...since a new regulatory year has started.....right?
I'm a legal kinda guy and don't want to ruin my hunt on Admirality because I shot a bear near Fairbanks, and I don't want to shoot one here, then one on Admirality and violate the game laws.
So my question is...Can I shoot one now in ANY GMU that has a 1 bear a year limit AND THEN go to Admirality in September and shoot one there?
Lets also throw in the hypothetical....
If I shot one Griz in a 2 bear per year GMU, could I then hunt and shoot a bear in a 1 bear per year (or every 4 years) GMU?
