Registration permits (RM785) for moose hunting in the Minto Flats Management Area in Unit 20B will be issued from 10:00 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, January 7, 2009 in Minto, Nenana and Fairbanks.

Beginning at 10:00 a.m. on January 7th, 36 permits for RM785 will be issued in Fairbanks, 33 permits in Minto, and 22 permits in Nenana. Lines will originate outside the door on the north side of the Fairbanks Fish and Game office at 1300 College Road, at Minto Lakeview Lodge, and at the north entrance of the Nenana Tribal Hall at 802 "G" Street. Individuals must physically maintain their own place in line. Lists of names or numbers will not be honored. "Moose numbers remain high enough in this area to allow the winter registration hunt to take place again this year," said Assistant Area Biologist Tom Seaton. "This is a limited registration permit hunt, and we'll offer 91 permits for a moose of either sex for the winter hunt in the Minto Flats Management Area."

Permits are issued on a first come, first served basis. Hunters must register in person for the permits and must have a 2009 hunting license in their possession. Only Alaska residents qualify for the permits, which will be limited to one per household. If hunters have killed a moose anywhere in Alaska after July 1, 2008, they are not eligible for this hunt.

Hunters with questions can call 459-7206 or 459-7233 for more information.
