Bull moose season will open for the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta in just a week and a half. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game is issuing permits (RM615)  for Unit 18 right now.

The hunt is divided into two zones with separate quotas. The quota in Zone 1 is a total of 170 bull moose; Zone 2’s quota is 110 bull moose. Both quotas are the same as last year, and the bag limit is one bull moose.

Zone 1 will be open until early September. Fish and Game Assistant Biologist Keith Oster says that’s the estimated time when hunters will reach the quota. Zone 2 will remain open until the end of September.
