I knew the limit was raised from 2 caribou to 5 for the majority of unit 26B including the Haul Road, but I did not realize that it will switch to "any caribou" throughout the entire season.
Here is the breakdown. The final say will be in the 2010/2011 regs, but this is from the BOG summary:
Unit 26B South of 65 Deg 30N Lat will be no closed season, and the only restriction is to prohibit the taking of cows during the calving season (May 16-June 30th).
Unit 26B North (remainder) will be open for any caribou (bull or cow) from July 1 - April 30th for residents. Non-residents will still have to wait until October 1 to take cows.
Can somebody look up and provide a mile marker or landmark that could describe the 65 Deg / 30N Lat area on the highway?
Also, with July 1st cow caribou hunting, are the newborn calves able to take care of themselves at a month and a half old?
