  • Hunting violations in the delta area.

    Wow, just read the paper, 11 sub-legal bull moose were turned in two caribou violations, and a sub-legal sheep and a cow mistaken for a bull.
    All but two of the people were from other parts of the state.

    I think some people need to take a corse on figuring out a leagal bull.

    ( this was just delta, I'm sure other areas were hit just as hard.)

    That's a bummer. It begs the question how many sub-legal animals are taken home w/o anyone knowing AND how many sublegal animals are left to rot to avoid a ticket.

      10 times as many at least.

        I thought of that to.

        Its a great place to hunt, but if people cont. to abuse it, who knows what will happen.

        You take this kind of a report and add in the anterless hunts and delta will be a has-been.

        ( On a side note, cracked me up, there was a guy that works at the pogo mine , met him at the bridge, he was from kenai and ( and that is 500 miles away) he got his buddy to come up with two sportjohns and they went up and got two small moose and a small bou. above the mine. For those of you that don't know, that is approx. 100 miles from the bridge. Congrats to the guys, but the money that was spent for that adventure had to be way up there.)

          These kind of issues are not limited to the Delta area. Check the Trooper Dispatch and see what has been 'reported' around the State. It is truly sad, the number citations that have been issued. Wonder where a good part of the game population is going????

            Yeah there were 10 or so last time I looked at the Frontiersman blotter (Mat-Su).

              I would be really curious each year how the sub legal moose split out by number. Is it forks and spikes that turned out to not be spikes, sub 50's, sub brow times etc. I would think ADFG could use that to reinforce certain aspects of their outreach so folks know what others have done wrong and to stress the ways to avoid such issues.

                Wouldn't all these sub legal bulls not be taken if f@g took out the 50" rule?

                  I am not totally opposed to the 50" rule! I have walked away from several bulls that were close to 50"'s, but that is the way it goes. There has to be some guide lines so that the 'breeding' age animals are still around to maintain the herd. ADF&G used to have a video out called "Is this moose legal" that really shows what to look for. It is well worth looking at!
                  I would also suspect that some that take 'sub-legal' moose just get excited and their judgment gets impaired. It can and does happen more then some would like to admit.

                    I agree it seems to be a very problematic rule for a lot of folks.
                    I would like to see a spike/fork hunt every year,
                    then every other year a short any bull hunt maybe 5 days or a week long.

                        Last time i was near delta i witnesses 3 illegal kills, along with some drunks stumbling along a trail " ready to shoot a moose".
                        Have not been there since.

                          ...(and the odds are extremely high that they weren't from Delta. Just say'n.).

                            Yeah- Delta seems to be the road system moose location in vogue currently with all the joy that entails... I live in great moose country, and drive 90 miles to get away from it.

                              I think the question should be did they "damage" any beaver dams!

                              Sounds like a fun trip to me! When I lived in Bethel I burned 200 gallons of gas (around 6 bucks a gallon) moose hunting 1 year . Seen 3 moose total and didn't fill a tag...but it was still good time!
