(SitNews) Craig, Alaska - The Thorne Bay District Ranger, Rachelle Huddleston-Lorton and the Craig District Ranger, Matt Anderson, under authority delegated by the Federal Subsistence Board, are closing the Federal public lands of Unit 2 to the harvest of wolf from 11:59 p.m., Sunday, February 22, 2015 until 11:59 p.m., March 31, 2015. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) is also closing the State hunting and trapping seasons in Unit 2 on the same date.

Federal regulations state that the hunting and trapping seasons for wolf within Unit 2 may be closed when the combined Federal/State harvest quota is reached. The combined harvest quota has been set at 25 wolves. State and Federal managers believe this quota will be reached by the closure date.

Maps of Federal lands within Unit 2 are available at U.S. Forest Service offices. Maps and additional information on the Federal Subsistence Management Program can be found on the web at .
