    Default Winter Caribou hunt canceled

    I just got a mess. from D.Q. that the winter hunt will not happen for the 40 mile herd this year, as there were to many shot this season on the road system.

    It also says that are thinking about lowering the number for next year

    If I knew how to link the e-mail I would post it, but not that savey. It does say that zone 2 is still open, can't figure that out. But not too many people these areas.

    If you have questions about this contact-dmq@wildak.net- and he can explain more.

    i ahve seen a rather high number of success storis out of both the 40 mile and the steece herd this fall..

    perhaps it was the smoke??? hard to say.. but i expect the winter hunt for R-permits will be non existant or very limited..

    Lanche... yeah i agree things are going to change there soon.. Prolly a Tier !! situations again eh???? ( i hear bombers)
