The harvest limit is one bull moose per permit. Two permits will be made available to Federally qualified subsistence users by random drawing to be held on July 15, 2019. In order to qualify for the drawing, applicants must be rural residents of Units 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5, and have lived in Alaska for the previous 12 months. Residents of nonrural areas of these units (the Juneau and Ketchikan areas) are not eligible for the drawing. Only one permit will be issued per household, and a household that received a State permit for Berners Bay moose is not eligible to receive a Federal permit.
