Evidently, the potential for busting up a snowmachine outweighs the potential for getting a moose.

How else do you explain the relatively slow harvest rate in the Minto Flats Management Area winter antlerless moose hunt?

As of Monday, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game said that only 25 moose had been reported taken by hunters. That accounts for only 25 percent of the 100-moose quota.

The  department has issued 620 registration permits for the hunt since it opened on Oct. 15. The hunt will remain open until hunters reach the quota or Feb. 28.

With only 11.1 inches of snow reported at Fairbanks International Airport — 10 inches below normal — conditions are still rough for snowmachines and ATVs.
