My sister has moved to AK, as many of you have seen I am planning a hunt there with her as my guide in fall 2007.
Have you ever heard of someone having trouble declaring residency or obtaining a resident license and filling out appropriate forms to guide a NR next of kin?
I want to be SURE I do everything right, my sister is living there, and I will be there in fall 2007, but I do not want to show up, ready to go, and run into a problem!
I keep hearing it is as simple as getting an AK drivers license then getting a hunting license. I cannot believe that is it. Seems like anyone can visit there, get a drivers license and come back in a year and hunt as a resident?
Bottom line is what should I tell my sister to do to be TOTALY sure that we will not have a problem.
I figure a good way is to hear stories about someone who had trouble.
