Nuisance moose may be taken under special authorization by licensed moose hunters from September 1 to December 31 under the following conditions:


Conservation officers may authorize licensed hunters to take nuisance moose after the officer has verified that a nuisance problem exists.


An authorized party taking a nuisance moose must register it with the authorizing conservation officer within 48 hours after taking.


Once a party has taken a nuisance moose, the moose license is no longer valid.


Hunters authorized to take nuisance moose are subject to all provisions of parts 6232.3600 to 6232.4100 not inconsistent with this part and all laws relating to taking wild animals.


Authorization may only be granted to a party of hunters that has a valid moose hunting license. Priority must be given to parties with licenses valid for the zone in which the damage is occurring. Authorization may be granted for nuisance moose outside zones open to hunting. Only one party may hunt under an authorization. Each authorization is restricted to a specified location.
