From an ADFG News Release >>>
The Alaska Department of Fish & Game is announcing the early closure of the RM038
registration moose hunting season in the drainages of the Stikine River in Game Management Unit 1(B).
An Emergency Order has been issued (#01-03-06) closing the RM038 moose season in the
drainages of the Stikine River effective at 11:59 pm on Friday, 6 October 2006
By Thursday, 5 October 2006, the reported harvest of bull moose in the Stikine River drainages had reached 31 animals. This represents the highest moose harvest on the river since 1990. In addition, a growing problem of noncompliance with the existing antler regulations has resulted in unacceptably high harvest of bull moose that were intended to be protected by existing regulations. Any additional harvest of bull moose in the Stikine River drainage may jeopardize the future productivity of this moose population.
All other moose hunting regulations in Unit 1B, including the DM033 moose drawing permit
hunt, remain unchanged and are not affected by this Emergency Order.
Hunters with questions about moose hunting in Game Management Unit 1(B) can contact the
Petersburg Area Office of the Alaska Department of Fish & Game @ 907-772-3801.
