    Default Canadian Hunting In Alaska?

    Is it possible for a Canadian to hunt in Alaska with an Alaska resident as a host? (Not with an Outfitter)
    In Alberta, I can host 2 non residents per year.

    A large part of the answer would depend upon what you are hunting for.....

    Default Check a little thing called the Alaska Hunting Regs.

    I had a serious question about driving on Alaska roads the other day and what I was authorized to use my vehicles for on state roads. You'll never guess where I found the answer. The states DMV office. I was going to go on a blog and ask everyone that's familiar with the regulations. But after second thought I went directly to the governing body that had jurisdiction over my matter. Wonder how I thought of that?

    Thanks! That's a great story.

    I did look in the reg's and found that I do need to go with a guide, however I don't know if the guide needs to be employed by an outfitter or can any Alaskan become a guide.

    Sadly, anyone can become and Alaskan Guide. If you DO go with a guide, you run a real chance of that person not residing IN Alaska.

    There ARE some awesome guides on this forum who are Alaskans.

    Hopefully they can chime in.

    Only a Canadian would have replied so politely to that comment


    Now go do what Snowman tried to tell you and contact ADFG.

    Not that subtle huh?
    From what I've read about apprenticing for being a guide then getting into the business it doesn’t sound like any old Alaskan can just go out and be a guide. Then there are the years of experience and the business and trust to build up. I know it's not always true but you hope your guide is an avid outdoorsman and fair chase advocate that most sportsmen are. If not you don’t use him again

    I was hoping to find an Alaskan that might want to hunt in Alberta for free with me and that I could hunt with in Alaska.
    I will check with the Alaska wildlife guys on Monday.

    Perhaps in a happier future, we will all be stuck to living and working in the state we are born in and those pesky strangers from other states will never move to ours! Maybe some day we can even keep people from other COUNTRIES from coming to the US!

    So I reads the title and I thinks "We can hunt Canadians now?"

    If that were the case, 90% of you goobers wouldn't be up there yourselves.

    Before any of you "real Alaskan" transplants get fired up, let me apologize.

    Just poking fun and making a point at the same time.

    I understand more than most "pesky" lower 48's why you are proud to be up in Alaska.

    I think they have to be an official guide. It ends up being prohibitively expensive as a non-resident alien, which you would be. Plus, non-resident alien hunting licences are super expensive. If it's worth it to you, then welcome! I moved up from Calgary 3 years ago myself... whereabouts are you from?

    Sorry to see you're so opposed to the Constitution, MT. Luckily since you live in Nome, a boat trip across the Bering might land you in a Country more on par with your belief system.


    Sadly, no US state can pass laws forbidding non residents to work in their state.
    Realistically, US States (The word State is capitalized there Mikey, perhaps your distaste for the Constitution has bled over to disrespect for States and their status. Or perhaps you're just chip-board ignorant), while unable to forbid non-residents from working there as guides, can -and should- charge a much higher fee for licensing said carpetbaggers.


    Sadly, even Hippie can move to another state (if any of them would have him) and get work there.
    As much as it chaps your @ss, I am from here, and am not goin' anywhere.
    Perhaps in a happier future, we will all be stuck to living and working in the state we are born in and those pesky strangers from other states will never move to ours!
    Well, if/when your dream becomes a reality, I'll help you pack for the return South....


    Maybe some day we can even keep people from other COUNTRIES from coming to the US!
    Probably something most Native Americans hope for on a daily basis.



    I guess folks who aren't from here don't have the same pride in being an Alaskan that a great many of us from here share. Hence they have no reservations about those who tote the title of an "Alaskan Guide" when there permanent address reveals this to be false, being allowed to carry out the facade.....

    Thanks for your reply, I'm from Calgary too.
    Why did the only serious reply come from a Canadian?
