The Federal moose season in Unit 22B west of the Darby Mountains closed on Monday (Jan. 8) at 11:59 p.m. according to a press release from the Bureau of Land Management.
The closure follows the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, which closed the hunt on state lands last week (Jan 5).
The winter season opened January first with a combined quota of 12 bull moose.
