    Default Anyone familar with moose poulation on the Black river

    Off the Porcupine?
    I started planning a trip via riverboat next year and was wondering if anyone has any Moose hunting experience on the Black River?
    Particuarly I would like to know if there is a decent population or if I should assume it most likely would be a camping trip.
    See, I have set the stage and started making plans and dragging others in on what I am hoping to be a good trip.
    I worked on a cabin up there years ago and would like to go back, I know there are never any guarantees hunting.
    I never hear about this area, and its got me wondering???

    I live relatively close by and have heard past reports from the residences in Chalk. that there was quite abit of moose some yrs. back but currently the latest is that it is pretty grim. Predation is very high.

    Maybe we will have to hunt predators instead

    Too bad they dont taste like Moose, although I wouldnt mind a blueberry black bear

    Looking at the current reg book shows that area is a harvest ticket hunt, meaning to restrictions. Also open to non res. That's a good sign that the moose pop. is decent. However, the season there is only 10 days. That says the pop. isn't great. Best info would probably come from the area bio who is probably in Fbks. That area is part of Yukon Flats NWR and their bio should also have relavent info.
