Is the bull legal or not? It’s critical for hunters to know the law before they head into the field on a hunt.Loren Holmes photo

As hunting season progresses, so does the count of moose illegally killed on the Kenai Peninsula — either from hunters not making themselves aware of new regulations or not taking the time to be sure a moose they’re targeting is legal.

“The total is at 10 right now,” said Lt. Jon Streifel with the Alaska Wildlife Troopers in Soldotna. That’s 10 bulls illegally killed in Game Management Units 7 and 15.

Troopers are investigating one wanton-waste kill so far this season. At Mile 108 of the Sterling Highway, an illegal moose was found shot and left at the side of the road.
