Caribou hunting regulations have changed in Noatak National Preserve for some hunters for the current regulatory year. Beginning July 1, 2016, Noatak National Preserve as well as other federal public lands in Unit 23 are CLOSED to caribou hunting by non-federally qualified users for one year. This is the result of the Federal Subsistence Board approving Wildlife Special Action WSA16-01 in April 2016, a request submitted by the Northwest Arctic Subsistence Regional Advisory Council.

For more information, including more details on who is allowed to hunt caribou and where, see this fact sheet produced jointly by the U. S. Fish & Wildlife Service, National Park Service and Bureau of Land Management.  Contact the Northwest Arctic Heritage Center at 907-442-3890 if you have any questions.
