State to issue permits for winter moose hunt
The Department of Fish and Game will issue registration permits for a winter moose hunt in the Minto Flats Management Area in game management unit 20B from noon-2 p.m. on Jan. 3 in Fairbanks, Minto and Nenana. Forty permits will be issue in Fairbanks, 36 in Minto and 24 in Nenana.
The permits allow the holder to shoot a moose of either sex from the time the season opens on Jan. 10 until it closes Feb. 28.
Permits are issued on a first-come, first-served basis and hunters must physically maintain their own place in line to get a permit. Applicants must have a 2007 hunting license in their possession to get a permit. Permits will be limited to one per household. Only Alaska residents may apply. If hunters have killed a moose anywhere in Alaska after July 1, 2006 they are not eligible for the hunt.
In Fairbanks, the line will originate outside the doors of the white ATCO unit east of the Fish and Game office at 1300 College Road. In Minto, the line will form at the Minto Lakeview Lodge. In Nenana, hunters will line up at the north entrance of the Nenan Tribal Hall at 802 G St.
Due to a mistake, Fairbanks was omitted as a permit distribution point in the state hunting regulation booklet.
