The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) has issued a

concurrent closure in the same zones. Additional mountain goat harvest in this zone could have long term

negative effects on the conservation of the mountain goat subpopulation. The remainder of Baranof Island

is open to goat hunting until the season closes, unless closed by special action.

A map and description of the closed areas are available from the Sitka Ranger District and the Sitka area

office of ADF&G. Information on Federal subsistence management special actions for the Tongass

National Forest can be found at For additional
