Hunters are reminded that the reporting requirement for RL065, is now “within 3 days of kill.” Successful hunters must report within three days in person at any ADF&G office or by phone (907-424-3215). Hunters may also call 907-424-3215 with preliminary reports that provide their name, hunt area, date of kill, and the sex of the black bear.

Black bear hunting in Unit 6D remains a very popular activity with consistent hunting opportunity. As technology improves, it has become easier to get good in-season hunt data. Better and more timely communication will help ensure future hunting opportunity.
