    Who's hunted this permit? Looking to get some general knowledge. I've hunted it during the winter season, but The fall will be different and with the moose patterns also.

    Do you mean DM424? DM424 runs 9/1 through 11/15, 427 is the winter hunt.

    I drew 424 as well. I have searched back through the forums and found some good info.

    But I agree, any additional info would be great.

    Best of luck

      Oops yes dm 424. I have hunted the winter one before. Lots of fun, but really hard hunt as the snow was so crunchy it was impossible to put a good stalk on. Also, they were very skittish animals.
      I wonder if they will have this hunt this year with the virus going on.

        I am cautiously optimistic that they will keep the hunt, but who knows.

        Fortunately have signed up for the proficiency shoot.

          I am deployed at the moment and haven't been able to sign up. I need to know when I am coming home first before I can do that.

            My understanding is the hunts are still on right now (both black bear currently, and moose/black bear this fall and winter).
            Base access is the key, not the actual hunting being open or closed.
            If you have access to the base, the hunts are still on. However, if you do not have access to the base (ie non-military
            /visitor pass) then you cannot access the base to hunt...right now. That may be tweaked soon...
            Alaska Gray should be good to go.
            If you have any questions you can call or email Mr. Hedges who is listed on the forms you received in the mail. The folks in the office are mostly hunters, too, and are there to help you. They like to see success on these hunts otherwise it would be a colossal waste of their time. However, he has no control over base closures, but he may be able to give you some insight on what may happen in the next few months, the success rate of last fall’s moose hunt, etc.

            I drew the DL455 JBER black bear hunt for 2020/2021 season, so I am keeping a close eye on the developments as well. I was successful on connecting with a bear on JBER in the 2019 Spring hunt. The JBER hunt coordinators were very helpful pre and post hunt.
