The creek bottom and gravel benches of Dominion creek have produeed millions to date under 1he primitive or individual miner methods.

Both dredges are mak- . fi h' , ln~ ne s owmgs. Gold Run , creek is another famous early producer, and is now being ext ensively dredged by the Yukon Gold Company with big success.

'The moose, one of th'e waxiest of the big game animals, has been OIl the steady increase of late and can be found in nearly any of the draws or low hills. Although very plenti­ ful, these animals are very seldom seen in herds pf Il10re than t hree or four, and on account of their keen sense of smell are most difficult for the novice to kill except in the run­ ning seasoIl, which starts about the first or second week in Sep'tember . At this time of the year a moose call may be used to lure th e bulls, and if there is any within ear-shot it means in practically every intance a grubstake for the wi~~er. One lucky hunter succeeded in landing seven fine bulls in three days this fall,. u.sing the call method. For the big game huntel's, the heaqs are the greatest attraction. A perfect set, measuring 72 inches, bagged in the White River District, is the largest on record in the t er­ ritory. The mountain sheep, whose flesh is most delicious of the big game animals, are the most difficult to get. They abound in the higher reaches of the mountains and are oonsequently far from the main Yukon and main settlements.
