    Alaska State law is if you are otherwise allowed to posses the gun here you may carry it any way you like, it says nothing about residency at all, where you are from doesn’t matter so long as you are legal to have the gun. As a U.S. non resident alien I believe (and I’m no lawyer) that to be allowed to have a gun you need a hunting license or something like your “form 6” (whatever that is) would cover it to satisfy the federal laws allowing you to have it. If legal to have it you can pack it but no bars, schools, Federal offices and what not. Also you must inform law enforcement officers you have it on you if they contact you in the line of duty, in other words if a cop says hi to you then you say something like hello officer, I am armed, what can I do for you.

    Read the Misconduct Involving Weapons laws here:

    Out in the bear woods I doubt anyone is going to bother you for being armed legal or not.

    Nobody will look twice at you carrying a gun for bear protection in the woods (inside Denali National Park is one exception where you are not allowed to have any guns). You don't need a hunting licence unless you are actually hunting bears or other game. If you have to shoot one in self defense, notify the authorities and tell them the situation. They will believe you, unless you happen to have bacon draped all over you, or were trying to feed it honey

    Actually, since 2010 you can legally carry guns in national parks.

    Uh, well you better have some kind of validating license and it says "or hunting license" so I'd sure be getting me one! You can buy one on-line here: https://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cf...icense.fgstore

    Well I guess I am going to have to eat my words. I never thought that being a non-U.S. citizen might change things, although I don't know why it should. As far as I knew, a concealed carry permit was not necessary in AK, and a hunting licence wasn't needed to shoot bad guys. I guess aliens are an exception. Sorry for the misinformation.

    Cover your butt by buying a small game license then or the cheapest license you can. No one says you can't hunt rabbits with a .44. A
    .430 muzzle loading ball backed by 8 grains of Unique does a rabbit no good out to 20 yards.
