Summary

In 1994, the Alaska Legislature passed legislation directing the Board of Game to identify big game prey populations where "intensive management" (IM) would be used to attain and sustain high levels of harvest. The IM law specifically provides for active management of predators and habitat, but thus to mention that antlerless hunts are key to achieving high levels of harvest. We discuss IM for moose in Game Management Unit (GMU) 20A through 2005, because GMU 20A has a unique history of predator management and currently supports the highest moose density for any equivalent-sized area in Alaska. Moose numbers in GMU 20A exceeded the IM population objectives beginning in 1999, but the IM harvest objectives were not met during 2002-2005. [...]
