From an ADF&G News Release dated 31 August 2006: The Department of Fish and Game is closing antlerless moose hunting in the eastern part of Unit 20A. The season in Zone 6, the area east of Delta Creek, will close at 11:59 pm on Monday, September 4th, 2006.
“A combination of high hunter participation and good weather resulted in high hunter success rates,” said Fairbanks Area Biologist Don Young.
The Board of Game authorized registration permit hunt RM764 for antlerless moose in 20A between August 25 and February 10, unless closed earlier by emergency order.
The quota for antlerless moose in all of Unit 20A is 700, but to distribute the harvest more evenly, the Department divided the unit into seven hunting zones and established individual quotas for each zone based on estimated moose abundance. A zone map is printed on the back of the hunt permits.
The quota of 20 antlerless moose for Zone 6 will likely be reached by Monday night.
Hunters with RM764 permits may continue to hunt in zones 2, 3, 4 and 5 of Unit 20A. Zone 1 is closed and Zone 7 does not open until October 4th. Successful hunters must report their harvest to the Fairbanks ADF&G office (459-7272) within 2 days of the kill for Zones 3 and 6 and within 5 days of the kill for Zones 2, 4, and 5. Reporting online is available at http://hunt.alaska.gov Unsuccessful hunters must report to the Fairbanks ADF&G office within 15 days of the end of the season.
