I've got a job offer on the table that would take me from OK to AK. We don't have many animals roaming about that are known to kill people, although someone did spot a mountain lion the other day. I was wondering what is typical in AK in regard to carrying handguns when fishing, hiking, etc.? Are there specific regulations related to carrying? My wife has been reading some articles about wolves following people who are walking their dogs. They are carrying pepper spray??? I'd rather have something a little more potent if I got in a jam. Any comments or insights would be appreciated. I'll broach the topic of "which handgun to carry" later as I'm sure that will result in a more heated debate.
