Thread: Subsistence hunt Petersville area?

    Default Subsistence hunt Petersville area?

    Was out riding sleds at Petersville yesterday and came across some guys hauling out a medium sized bull moose. I have never seen anyone hunting moose this late in the year out there and am curious if there is a subsistence hunt out that way?

    That explains it, I saw them on Petersville rd about a mile before the Kroto Creek parking lot. I don't know where they shot the bull.

    There's a 16B youth hunt from Nov 15 to Dec 15

    They are a little early for the 16B tier two, unless they had a youth permit.

    Petersville Road isn't in 16B, it's in 16A and there is not a winter hunt in that unit according to the game regs. To be in 16B they would have had to shoot the moose on the south side of the Kahiltna River, didn't think it was crossable yet.

    The Kahiltna shouldn't be frozen yet and I saw these guys coming out with that moose around 3 in the afternoon. 2 were riding double, 1 was carrying what looked like a long range rifle. They had no gear so I doubt they spent the night out there and I didn't see any youngsters with them..
