Teslin Tlingit Council restricts moose hunt

On elders advice, the First Nation is taking the step in the hopes of improving moose numbers.

A southern Yukon First Nation is restricting its moose hunt this year.

The Teslin Tlingit Council says at their Annual General Assembly, it was decided to continue voluntary restriction on moose harvesting for its citizens on settlement land.

The First Nation also isn't issuing permits for non-citizens.

TTC elders say they are very concerned there's overharvesting in their traditional territory, as the moose population has been decreasing for a number of years.

The First Nation is also asking citizens to register their harvest with the Yukon Government's Lands and Resources department, as it will help with the management of the moose population, and provide important information.
