We analyzed the age, sex, and chronology of the polar bear (Ursus maritimus) harvest in the Northwest Territories (NWT) from 1979-80 to 1989-90. The mean annual harvest during that period was 517 with a current quota of 617. Sex and age information was obtained on approximately 90 % of the total kill. The harvest was selective for males (63 %). The mean age, sex ratio, and age composition varied according to area, type, and month of harvest. Inuit hunters accounted for 88.8% of the harvest,doi:10.2307/3872707 fatcat:jtk3ehakyjg75p4kkm6s5nyq7e
