A rugged, whitewater river flowing northward through deep canyons, the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent. New River Gorge National River in West Virginia encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the New River, is rich in cultural and natural history, and offers an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities.
Denali is six million acres of wild land, bisected by one ribbon of road. Travelers along it see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest give way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North America's tallest peak, 20,310' Denali. Wild animals large and small roam un-fenced lands, living as they have for ages. Solitude, tranquility and wilderness await.
The Kenai National Wildlife Refuge Manager, under authority delegated by the Federal Subsistence Board, has established a harvest quota of eight (8) cow moose for Unit 15C on the Kenai Peninsula. The quota is effective for the 2014 Federal subsistence moose season, which runs August 10-September 20, by Federal registration permit only. The season will be closed to the harvest of cow moose once the quota is met. The harvest of spike-fork bull moose or bull moose with 50-inch antlers, or with 3 or more brow tines on either antler, will still be allowed.
The cow moose quota for 2014 represents an estimate of a sustainable harvest level for moose utilizing Federal public lands within Unit 15C, considering moose population status, moose distribution, and overall harvest levels (bulls and cows) and non-hunting related mortality in this unit as a whole. The quota is established to ensure long-term subsistence moose hunting opportunity on Federal public lands, consistent with meeting Refuge purposes, in this unit.
Under Federal subsistence regulations, only residents of Ninilchik, Seldovia, Nanwalek and Port Graham are eligible to hunt cow moose on Federal public lands in Unit 15C. Residents of these communities can obtain permits at the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge headquarters in Soldotna (907-262-7021). For additional information, contact Todd Eskelin at (907) 260-2817.
