Re: I need some Alaska advice from residents

Been here and hunted for 40 years.
1. Yes, when a family member becomes a resident he may take first Kindred relatives hunting with him without a guide.
2. Once a guide I can saw that research in particuler with Fish and game biologist and spending time with aer surveys and flying ones self a do it yourself hunt is a very rewarding experience.

3. Money is definitely an issue if one must fly a moose out in addition to hunting members and gear. Float trips are much better and since he is in the military there are places on most if not all bases in which recreation vehicles like boats,camp trailers and 4-wheelers can be rented to military personel. I stayed with a friend @ Fort Greeley and could not believe all the neat stuff that could be rented!

    Your father-in-law must purchase a non-resident license; he must purchase a moose harvest ticket/trophy tag; if he is an American citizen he will not need the services of a guide or outfitter--otherwise he must hire and be under the influence of the guide (s) for the duration of his hunt. Whether or not his son or daughter is in the military and stationed in Alaska is immaterial.

    Alaskans do not appreciate those who disrespect them any more than anyone else does or should; if someone cheats and lies to obtain a resident license here another someone will surely contact the authorities. Anyone who hunts in Alaska owes it to them-self to obtain and learn the state regs and the federal regs. Both cover hunting in Alaska within their respective jurisdictions. Read and study the penalties for violations; some are a crime and carry heavy fines and seizure of all equipment...

    Float trips are my favorite way to hunt in Alaska, I believe they are the most affordable way to do a true wilderness hunting trip. Success in float hunting is having plenty of time and not being in a hurry like trying to come to Alaska and hunt for moose in 7 days, thats just not enough time and you will be more focused on making your takeout and woried about missing the plane that taking your time, being relaxed and hunting. Most of the rivers in the interior are less technical and pretty safe for long extend trips. There is no better time to do a float trip than in the fall, best weather, best colors, and on most rivers there will multiple species of animals to hunt. Its a silent, slow motion hunting experience. The key again is have plenty of time to be successful like 12 to 14 days on the water.

    If he is in the military he is restricted for one year for On Millitary Land only hunting.

    After that he can get a resident miitary hunting license

    after that one year he can hunt anything in Alaska same as I.

    suggest to visit the AK game and fish website I am sure the reg and info will be on the site

    Any visitors have to get a Non Resident license

    Happy Hunting
