        RC562 Nelchina Caribou Hunt to Close by Emergency Order

        (Glennallen) – Nelchina caribou hunt RC562 will close by emergency order for the remainder of the fall hunting season on Thursday, September 9, at 11:59 p.m. The harvest quota of 350 caribou for RC561 has been reached. 
    The Alaska Department of Fish and Game’s summer 2021 estimate for the Nelchina herd is approximately 38,400 caribou. To prevent overharvest, maintain adequate sex ratios within the herd, and maintain the herd within abundance objectives, the department determined a harvestable surplus of 1,600 caribou.

Community Subsistence Harvest Hunt In Unit 13E Changed On September 8th

 SEPT 8, 2021 

(Glennallen) – The bag limit for moose in the Copper Basin Community Subsistence Harvest Hunt (CM300) in Game Management Unit 13E is scheduled to change by emergency order from one bull moose to one bull moose with spike or fork or 50-inch antlers, or antlers with four or more brow tines on at least one side. This change will take effect at 11:59 p.m., Wednesday, September 8, 2021.

Prior to the hunt, a quota of 25 bulls not meeting general season antler restrictions was established for the CM300 hunt in Unit 13E based on sustainable harvest principles and current population estimates. The quota has been reached for Unit 13E.

Copper Basin community moose hunters may still hunt in Unit 13E through the end of the regularly scheduled season (September 20); however, all bulls taken must meet state general hunt antler restrictions (spike-fork antlers, or 50-inch antlers, or antlers with four or more brow tines on one side). Community moose hunters are required to follow all established salvage requirements for the community harvest hunts through the end of the season.

Hunters with CM300 permits can still take moose that do not conform to general season antler restrictions in Units 11, 13A East, 13B, 13C, and 13D, however, hunters must have a locking tag in possession to take a moose that does not meet the general season restrictions and the locking tag must be affixed to the moose’s antlers immediately after it is taken.

Community hunters are encouraged to check the Community Subsistence Harvest hunt hotline (822-6789) for information about the status of quotas in other portions of the community hunt area and any additional emergency orders issued. Harvest reporting is required within 24 hours of kill for any moose harvested in the Community Subsistence Harvest hunt. You may call (907) 822-3461 to report your hunt 24 hours a day, 7 days a week during the hunting season.
