Yakutat, Alaska (KINY) – Yakutat District Ranger Lee Benson, under authority delegated by the Federal Subsistence Board, is closing the 2023 Federal subsistence moose season for that portion of Unit 5A west of the Dangerous River, except the Nunatak Bench, effective Oct. 16 2023 at 11:59 p.m. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) has a closure for the State season.

The quota for the 2023 moose season in Unit 5A is 30 bulls west of the Dangerous River and 30 bulls east of the Dangerous River. This closure is necessary to ensure that the harvest quota is not exceeded. Hunters are reminded that the remainder of Unit 5A east of the Dangerous River will remain open for moose hunting through November 15, 2023, or until 30 bulls have been harvested in that area.
