It’s not always easy to determine legal and illegal moose antler configurations. In Alaska, there are area specific rules on what determines a legal bull moose. This video aims to educate hunters on how antlers grow, what parts make up a moose antler and how to judge legal antlers in the field.
Keep in mind all non-resident hunters, all moose must have 50" (wide) rack or 4 Brow tines. See Vimeo Video
