Lynx hunting, trapping seasons / bag limits changed by EO
The Alaska Board of Game has delegated the setting of some seasons and bag limit parameters for lynx hunting and trapping to ADF&G. The point is to better track the abundance cycles of lynx so as to prevent overharvest, or in some years to allow opportunity that could be taken. It's called the lynx tracking harvest strategy. ADF&G put out an emergency order on this back in August, but it's back on the list as some of the seasons have been changed for this winter. If you think you might want to hunt or trap lynx this winter, this EO is probably worth a read.
