Bow only sheep hunts?
I've been searching through the regs and I know that there are a couple bow only draw hunts but are there any bow only harvest tag sheep hunts? I heard that there was one in the brooks but I can't find anything definitive.
The bow only sheep hunt in the Brooks Range you are referring to would be within the 5 mile corridor either side of the Dalton highway that is closed to the use of firearms for big game hunting. This is why it is considered a bow only area. As soon as you get 5 miles away from the road then you are allowed to use a rifle. Clear as mud??
