Im moving to AK next summer, as soon as my wife gets out if collage. I've been reading the AK hunting regs and I have a few questions that I would love you guys to answer if you don't mind. Here in Arkansas the game and fish commision sets state wide bag limits. I can not find any state wide limits in AK. I found the unit limits though. My first question is, for instance, if I take a bear on kodiak, it's limited to to one bear every four years, so, can I still go to another unit where the limit is one a year and take another one in the same year? The same question goes for other critters too. I'm not greedy. I don't want to kill every animal possible, I'm just wondering, plus, I really really like bear hunting. Next question is about bison. I know it's one bison every ten years. How hard is it to get a tag? There are "ranches" within five hours of here where I can "hunt" them but it's really not much of a hunt. I would love to hunt free-range wild bison. I also really really want a muskox. That brings me to my last question for now. I see on some muskox units they require the horns to be cut off and retained by game and fish. Why?
Thanks for any info! See ya next summer.
