New regs are out and quotas are set. Tho the quotas were not published in the book. So, on to the news.
All registration hunt permits are now available online EXCEPT the RX105 permit for 22B. You still have to travel to, or live in, a 22B village to get the permit.
Quotas are up in 22d-kuzitrin, 22d remainder, and 22b west. Likely these hunt areas will remain open till the end or close to the end of the Mar. 15 closing date.
You are now allowed 2 permits per calendar year. With permits now available online, you could drop into Nome to hunt, and if not satisfied, move onto another area, such as 22e.
The only bad news is the quota in 22c, which went from 34 to 20. Likely the 22c area will close in a month to 6 weeks. However, the hunt is very weather and animal location dependant. I suspect locals will be a little more anxious to fill their tags quickly.
The quota also went down in 22e, but that is not actually bad news as that sub unit never harvests it's full reg. hunt quota.
Lodging and equipment rental is available in both Nome and Shishmaref. There is also a quide service in Shish.
Keep an eye on the weather and hope for decent snow.
