The Federal Subsistence Board surprised many hunters in the Yukon Kuskokwim Delta by reopening the moose hunting season there. Now a massive chunk of land will be open for another month. The decision came after requests by the Yukon Delta Wildlife Refuge, and two tribes from the village of Marshall. The area has seen a rapid rise in the Moose population there. In their decision, the Subsistence Board cited poor travel conditions during the previous winter hunt.
