State downsizes bison hunt after a third of Delta herd starves to death
Delta Junction, Alaska, United States
6 Dec 2022
Alaska’s longest and most popular hunting season ended early this year. The Delta Junction bison hunt usually extends from October to March, but the state limited this year’s season to just two weeks, and only 50 animals were taken, because last winter’s heavy snow and ice buildup wiped out nearly a third of the Delta bison herd.
