Additional Requirements and Information

  • The state bag limit for caribou in GMU 13 is one caribou per household. If a member of your household kills a caribou in a federal subsistence hunt prior to taking a Tier I caribou this season, that household member has met the state GMU 13 bag limit and may not hunt with this permit. Other members of the household may still use this permit.

Hunt conditions and season dates can be changed by Emergency Order. Visit the Emergency Orders and Announcements page for more information.
