Can someone please explain to me when I apply for what. I have read the regs cover to cover a few times, but there are a few BIG THINGS that are confusing me. Here's the scoop...
I am currently Nonresident status and will be until summer of 08. However, I will be living in AK starting summer of 07. As of right now, I will only be in AK for about one and a half years and I would like to hunt whatever I can starting in the fall of 07.
Here are my questions:
Can I apply for a drawing permit hunt as a Non Resident?
Are these the so called "coveted tags"?
I don't understand what the difference is between the Spring Hunt Supplements and the Winter Hunt Supplements. Can someone tell me some specifics on these. I really haven't got the time periods thing figured out (when to apply for what species and what time of the year).
I just want to make sure I apply on time so that I don't miss out on next fall and winter hunting seasons. If I need to apply in November, I need to do some quick crash-course studying.
Oh yeah, I have called the ADF&G several times and I just cannot get ahold of them. It is probably because of the time difference and hours of operation (mine and theirs). If anyone has a name of a well educated official with a direct contact number, please pass that information along.
Thanks in advance. I know this is a touchy subject, I just want to take advantage of every hunt I can. If someone can give me the general time frames on the above, I will get to the nitty-gritty on my own. And I do understand that it is a lottery drawing and nothing is gaurenteed.
Thanks a bunch!
