    This is true, no more E callers for moose in the state of AK. But, you can use them for preditors, i.e. bears, coyote, fox etc......

    It ain't in the regs yet.

    It's like one of the slew of additional restrictions that come every year.

    It's more than homework anymore; it's darned near a full-time paralegal job to keep track anymore........

    Default No electric moose calls.

    It is on the front page of the new Drawing Permit Supplement.

    Ah, except emergency orders have priority over the general regs, so you better check those.

    I've noticed that ! That's why I asked. I wrote for regs but don't have them yet and they are really hard to read on line. That's the first thing I'm going to do when I get there in a month. --Get my hunting & fishing license and tags so I can read read read regs. If your'e "slow" It would be hard to hunt & fish in Ak without breaking rules.

    If your fast and up to speed it's a full time job for a team of lawyers. Remember all regs can be changed and seasons can be closed be emergency orders. Mike Feagle a Game officer shot a moose out of season and was cited. That's why you can't hunt for a year as a resident, it takes a year to learn the regs.

    Red face Regs

    Personally -- I don't know that the regs are all that difficult to understand - if you take them in context.

    Grab a copy of the hunting regs.
    Take out the staples.
    Cut the pages in half at the crease.

    The first 36 pages are general rules - applicable to the state.

    Now find the pages that cover the game management unit you plan to hunt.

    Now you have about 40 pages.

    Read them cover to cover

    Read the GMU of your choice, again. Break it into the sub-units within the unit.

    Get a copy of Google Earth... it's free

    Download the GMU GPS data for AK... also free ... import it into Google Earth.

    Now re-read the legal description of your hunt area... be sure it matches what Google Earth is now telling you (there was a disclaimer on the download).

    Determine where you plan to hunt... be sure you know your boundaries (re-read the GMU portion).

    Refer back to the regs for your GMU... determine when the season is for the applicable prey.

    You might need a calendar; so that you can highlight which days a season is open... which weapon is needed... what type of hunter's education you will need.
    So grab a handful of colored markers or highlighters too.

    Refer back to the original 36 pages... CAREFULLY read them to be sure that you will not violate a general regulation that isn't specifically identified in the GMU.

    Refer to the last pages of the book (hopefully you didn't throw them out! Might need a new reg), to see if there are notes or restrictions in the Fur Bear/Small game section that may somehow effect your hunting.

    Now, go on-line and read all the Emergency Orders for the region you plan to hunt. Read them carefully, as the verbage may be a little fuzzy as to what is open/closed or where.

    See... that's it!

    It should only take about a year to compile this data... and that's assuming you have picked an area that has game in it!

    Oooh, Don't forget... the regs are good 1 Jul - 30 Jun... So, on 1 Jul, start all over, because something changed, somewhere in the book that effects the way you hunt.

    Hehehehe - How do we ever get out and shoot at critters?

    Whew.

    Thumbs up E-Callers

    Oh, by the way... electronic calls are legal for critters in the 2007/08 regs.

    See Page 15 -- specifically states that electronic callers are legal for bears.

    Page 1 of the 2008/09 Spring Draw Hunt Supplement states: "The use of electronic moose calls is prohibited for hunting."

    Based upon that info... should be good for predators.

    What if you are a mute? Do you think they would make an exception. Kinda unfair that I have no way to call in a moose.

    The guy who got me into electronic moose calling was deaf.
