The quota for the 2019 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, 2019, or until 30 bulls have been harvested in that area.
