I know quite a few folks on here were hoping that they would eliminate the 20A antler restrictions for moose. The BOG just voted 7-0 on prop 98 to keep the antler restriction and the drawing permits for any bull in place. I think there are a couple more upcoming proposals on this, but the discussion for the board was pretty one sided.
A large part of what hurts that possibility is the 2013 moose survey that showed a decline in moose numbers. They are only going to issue around 540 any bull tags this year compared to 1000 last year and 900 the year before. My hope is that with the elimination of the antlerless tags this year, and the reduced number of any bull tags, the hunting pressure will drop considerably.
The conditions seem to be prime for this area for the moose to thrive, so even though I would love to have somebody in our party draw an antlerless or any bull tag this year, I'd like to see the moose numbers jump back up, and I think they will in short order. My personal take is that between the board of game and fish and game, they are managing this one just right.
