Unit 18 partial closures.

Reposted from the Village Telegraph. It bears repeating:



Reminder for Kuskokwim Moose Hunters: The Lower Kuskokwim Moose Moratorium in portions of Unit 18 remains in effect

Hunters in the Yukon Kuskokwim Delta are reminded that portions of Unit 18 remain closed to moose hunting as part of the Lower Kuskokwim Moose Moratorium, which is intended to increase moose numbers in these areas.
A recent press release suggested that all of Unit 18 was open to hunting. However, the Lower Kuskokwim moratorium area remains closed to the taking of moose by all users. The two areas that remain closed under Federal regulations are the Lower Kuskokwim River drainage and the area south of and including the Kanektok River drainage to the Goodnews River drainage. For a detailed description of the closed area as well as maps and harvest limits please consult the 2008-2010 edition of the Federal Subsistence Harvest of Wildlife regulations book.
