State grants extension of moose season near Emmonak

An Emergency request to extend the moose hunting season near Emmonak has been granted. The Alaska Board of Game and the Federal Subsistence Board decided yesterday to open up the lower Yukon for an additional month. Emmonak residents are struggling to survive after a disastrous commercial fishery last summer and high fuel prices this winter.
