It is our inherent right to hunt for sustenance when needed, however, for safety reasons, hunting should not occur near any populated areas or between dusk and dawn by means of “jack lighting”. For conservation purposes, the hunting of moose cows are only permitted every 5 years beginning in September 2005 and the hunting of moose calves is prohibited. It is strongly encouraged that proper caliber firearms be used when hunting.
