    Pretty sure it says in the regs that if it's not listed in there that you can't hunt it. That's why you can't shoot a mountain lion if you see one.

    CA PROPOSAL 126: Allow additional moose harvest opportunity in Unit 16A by providing
    an antlerless hunt and/or an “any bull” hunt. The board amended the proposal to allow up
    to 200 antlerless moose permits and 50 any bull permits; 8/20 – 9/25. The winter hunt was
    eliminated

    That will be nice with all the sub legal bulls and cows I seen last season. I might get lucky and draw a tag LOL!!!
    PEOPLE SAY I HAVE A.D.D I DON'T UNDERSTA.....OH LOOK A MOOSE !!!

    As written in the new changes paper I picked up at fish and game last week here in Anchorage:

    Units 1,5,11,12,13,20, and 25,allowed the harvest of white-tailed deer and mule deer. Harvest is allowed year-round and there is no bag limit. Persons who harvest animals are required to contact the department and provided specimens as required. Hunters are also required to salvage the entire carcass, including the hide, and present it to the department within a time specified.

    It kind of reminds me how they manage coyotes. Open season year round and no bag limit. I could be wrong but I don't believe coyotes are invasive, but I don't believe they've always been here either.

    Here are the screenshots of the Summary of Hunting/Trapping Regulatory Changes for 2019-2020 I got from ADF&G. Sorry it will take a few messages to add all of them due to picture limits.

    I couldn't figure out how to shrink the pdf or word document to make it go, but hopefully those who were looking for the summary rather than all of the proposal list

    Coyotes were prevalent even back when I was a teenager in the 1960's. I could catch wolves on the trapline back then, but those dang coyotes were wary *******s. Still are (lol).

    Great, a chance for the Board to hear and either make written finding on the "Field Requirement" for IBEF, or just ignore the previous Board's intent.

    Agreed. Someone should write up a proposal real quick.

    I'd propose they drop the IBEP requirement altogether along with muzzleloader. Both are an expense to the state, and they provide no objective benefit that can't be gained from a basic hunter ed course. Speaking of which, I'd also propose the basic hunter ed requirement be expanded to statewide.

    IF the state dropped it, and you only hunted in AK, you might be happy with that. But many states require a course and many of us hunt more than just Alaska. My Alaska IBEP card is valid everywhere I go. I believe that if you only gleam one thing that makes you a better hunter, you are better off.

    When I took my bow hunter we course half the class failed. And the instructors said half would fail. I’ve never seen such atrocious shooting in all my life, and those people were planning on shooting at animals!!
