With just one caribou reported so far, the winter's harvest will likely fall short of the season's 250-animal quota.
With a month left in the season, the Nushagak Peninsula caribou herd will likely go mostly un-hunted this winter. Listen to the story here:
The winter caribou hunt on the Nushagak Peninsula began on December 1st. Togiak Refuge wildlife biologist Andy Aderman said hunters have reported just one caribou from the season. People traditionally access the peninsula by snow machine, he said.
