    Gives all the whiners a second chance at the 20A moose. Maybe they will take the time to read the supplement this time!! Notice: This is the last spring drawing to be held, unless people forget and complain lots and then there will be another spring drawing! Do I sound bitter , no way. Still cant believe f & g did that.

    Gotta disagree with your philosophy on this one Vince. To me this is classical evidence of the BOG trespassing even deeper into hunters priveleges and opportunities. Just another way for them to be managing people, as opposed to managing the game. What difference does it really make, if a hunter shoots either sex, as long as they are permitted for it? I don't get the rationale and sure don't get the acceptance of it.

    I must say I'm with you on this one! The new Tier I has me scratching my head. If you draw a permit you or a member of your household cant hunt moose or caribou anywhere else in the state that year? What if your kid draws a cow moose tag on your own home turf? He cant hunt if his father drew a Tier I.

    For this reason I will not be applying for the Tier I this year. I will send in an application but check the box that I don't want a permit, just the points.

    Whats next? If you shop at Fred Meyers, but they run out of milk, you cant go to Carrs to buy some?

    I don't know about you , but I hunt Caribou where the Caribou are and Moose where the Moose are.

    Default What??

    Am I reading this right on 13B?? I now can't hunt the area I've been hunting forever, and it's non-resident only??? And only 10 permits??? That's the only reason I bought the place was for moose hunting.... I must be confused, cause that surely can't be right. Anyone want to buy the place??

    We haven't seen the new 2009 hunting regs yet, so no telling.

    My guess is there is still going to be a regular hunt for residents similar to what it was last year+ a few any bull drawing permits DM330-DM334, but no nonresident hunts without a drawing permit DM335-DM339.

    I had to read the drawing supplement a few times. At first I thought it was BS they were allowing nonresident only drawing permits for the most accessible areas of the unit. If you look closer the permits are for 50" 4 brow only.

    That leads me to believe that there will not be a Nonres regular season for unit 13.

    This is just my theory, so don't run with it just yet, but its the only thing that makes sense to me.

    How much do you want for the place? with no hunting allowed I should get it pretty cheap. LOL.

    Default Ah, okay

    That's a good point. I spit my coffee on my keyboard this morning when I read it originally. I'll go take my for sale sign down for awhile then. I can't imagine only giving 20 non-resident permits for the entire length of the Denali Highway and beyond, so maybe it's just a way to allow a few non-residents a way to hunt the area.

    Default Atleast you have permits

    They canned all the moose drawing permits in southeast this year. The only drawing permit I'm almost close too is the Etolin Island elk tag. In that case it's a donation whether you get a tag or not. Looks like I'm going to have to live vicariously through my friends up north this year.

    I am thinking that I am also going to hop on this bus. I want to give it a year to see what happens. I send in for my points and wait it out. They will probably can the hole thing right at the last minute and revert back to Tier II.

    I disagree with you. Again.

    Denali - The resident season will be unchanged, but a handful of non-residents will be able to hunt under the same 50"/4 brow tine rules. As for the more remote areas of the unit, a handful of residents will win any-bull permits, but those areas will also still be open for a resident spike/fork/50"/4 brow tine season.

    Default Nelchina?

    So how does this new system work for the Nelchina caribou?

    It's all clearly explained in the supplement. Basically, anyone can apply. If there are more applicants than permits, a drawing will be held among the applicants. If you don't win, you get a point which gives you a better chance next year. There is a limit of one permit per household every four years. If your household wins a permit, nobody in your household can hunt moose or caribou in any unit other than Unit 13 for the entire regulatory year.
