Re: Annual Harvests For Moose

TH,
Thanks a bunch. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
The lack of bear and wolves over there was mentioned as a major factor.
I'm not sure what the native harvest numbers are, but I'm sure they all aren't reported. I won't go into what I think about the subsitance priority too much but, Gary's father, Warren Olson has it in court right now. I think no equal access is BS. Racism for one, brotha.

Re: Annual Harvests For Moose

Yes,the hunt is very well organized and controlled over here. I am the vice president of our small club, the area for moose hunt is 35 000 hectares for us - 35 km2. We had 6 adults (half of which cows) and six calves tags now and the amount of tags is based on the actual population. They are counted carefully each winter, using sweat (walk,walk and walk) and choppers.

Our club hunt happens during the weekend and we use dogs. Whatever we harvest,we share it all equally, no matter who shoots or doesn´t shoot. Teamwork. Took three weekends to fill those tags,13 men in our moose club now, about 150 members in the whole club.

There is still more pressure from the central organization to take a calf or two in our area (based on the roadkill statistics) but right now the situation looks like we won´t do it. Still,it may be all different after a couple of weeks, more and more moose spend the winter in our area and we stay in touch with them all the year round, especially we who work as dog guides.

Haven´t started naming the moose yet. I guess some people (at least my wife [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] ) wouldn´t like the idea of "Jack" and "Eugene" in their freezers. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

EDIT: Only 90 Brown Bear tags this season in this whole country. That´s one bear per 1000 moose!

I agree with EQUAL ACCESS, and the laws should pertain to all, including the stupid Firearms Law in Canada.

Re: Annual Harvests For Moose

Petander thanx for posting the site for Hunting in Finland. Boy, I can see Browning would go broke in your country selling BAR'S. I see where semi's are a no go. Half of our hunting population would be finished to.

Re: Annual Harvests For Moose

I just finnaly got in and get a few days to see what is going on and what do I see but another winner from Anchor town crying how bad we that live in bush make your life. Answer this Brent how many peopole from your part of Alaska shoot a under 50 inch moose and walk off and let it rot!!!!!!!!!!!!!! in the bush or have no clue how to handle the food once it is down so that goes bad too.

I would have to agree that not having BEARS and WOLVES would make a real difference in the size of the moose heard how many wolves have you taken this year ?????? how many Bears did you get this fall or last spring???? if you want more moose you need to work on the problem before you ask I have taken 9 wolves and 49 coyotes so far and I still have till the end of april.

As to this new moose guy who I have heard about and he will change the way ADF&G does things I don't think so remember when the whole state could hunt the unit 13 Bou heard it worked very well till the area Bio. thought the heard was going to starve to death and put tear one in to play every one remembers that you had to kill a cow or a young bull some how he forgot all about the wolves and bears and now the heard is crashing or maybe he thought Bulls have calfs so why do we need cows for.

To all other members of this board I am sorry for this post but no matter where you go the race card is pulled and sorry Brent to reck your way of thinking I am WHITE not native so that does put a large hole in your Idea of who get's what in the state you could get all this free hunting just MOVE!!!!! give up a good job and live where I do. and before you turn that around and tell me to move I love what I do and where I live but I am not the one bitching eather >>><<< Coyote Slayer

Re: Annual Harvests For Moose

Brent its Mike from Delta Junction.I saw 145 moose in two weeks this season of two weeks.There was only one legal moose a fork that was hauling butt.I saw way more illegal kills most were 36-45 inches.The Russians,cars and trucks and wolves and bears get the rest.The biologist flew over the Grantis Mts and so no legal moose.I think all of Anchorage and Fairbanks comes here to hunt.Its hard as heck to kill a legal moose up here the the 4 brow tine and 50".I saw about 30 3 brow time bulls.I called on to my truck I asked him if he need a ride.He was 20 ft from the truck.There were about 10 grizzleys wounded from little guns like 243 and some 30-06 that no one found.If you dont have a four wheeler you wont get a moose.Most of the legal moose were shot above 6,000 ft.I am going to have to find somewhere else to hunt too many people.Has the nonresident guide rule passed.The guides made the 50 inch rule here I guess next year it will be 60"5 brow time till it goes up to 100 inches.The Kenai is ruined for hunting the sheep die there of bacteria there are so many.Forgien Princess tours makes sure of no hunting down there.Alaska is last Frontier not best tourist stop for greedy Japs.They want to pave the Denali Hwy and the Dalton Hwy I bet they get it.

Re: Annual Harvests For Moose

Brent; why is someone pulling the race card here. I in fact hunt with NATIVES and I showed them this POST. They are shocked that someone BEFORE READING AND UNDERSTANDING, starts pulling the PIN. Stop some of the $5000 trips plus, and take a good look before condemning others that have a sincere interest in THE MOOSE POPULATION.
