    Default Antlerless Question

    The regs state that an cow cannot be taken when it has a calf; what if there's two people hunting and one takes the calf; is the cow fair game after that?

    Probably depends if killing a calf is legal or not. If so, I don't see why not.

    There is a calf drawing permit up in the Fairbanks area (I think?), but other than that I can't think of a time when taking a calf is legal.

    Calves were legal in the antlerless hunts up until this year....The regs say no calves and no cows with calves!!

    I'm glad they changed it, unless for some reason Alaska's moose population is bursting at the seams.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    Some units do not allow taking cows with calves. That means they are off limits.

    Some units allow taking cows or calves so either one or both is fair game.

    There are areas that stipulate "Any Moose" as the bag limit. While I would not shoot a cow that had a calf with this regulation it would be legal.

    there are those hunts that would say ONE MOOSE.... it would also say cows with calf can not be taken or it will not meaning ONE moose...which means a moose no matter size
