    Default Alaska Gun & Hunting Regs

    I am considering buying some rural land possibly in the Kenai area in the near future. Can anyone tell me if there are any laws that prohibit hunting or shooting on land under a certain acreage?

    no shooting under acers...


    only over them...

    that will be set by community you live in... not the state... so if you live in and i mean IN town.... you may have a req. for the most part... we blaze away. with in reason...

    There are no acreage limitations that I am aware of for hunting or shooting on private property. Any restrictions to those activities would be based on local laws. I'm not familiar with Kenai Peninsula laws, but there are no state laws to be concerned with.

    Default Requirement

    You are required to fire off 20 rounds a week on any rural property down here:-) Or maybe that's just for Nikiski -jk.

    On the upper Kenai Peninsula, the requirement is 50 rounds per week must be fired, it keeps the trespassers on their toes. Anything under 50 rounds and your "MANHOOD" could be called into question. One neighbor fires about 1,500/2,000 rounds per day, Yes.....He is very, very, very RICH. Has his own army, and security force.

    I am not sure about the regs on the penisula, i dont hunt down there, but if you are worried about hunting on this property, you need to look in to if the property is located on a restricted weapons area. Kinda like the valley where you can hunt, but you have to use a bow, shotgun, or muzzleloader.

    I knew the Kenai Penn. had lower standards then the rest of the state... but .. only having a minimum of 20-50....

    If you are looking to be able to shoot on your property, go for it. But if you want to hunt on your property, go large. We have big game and low densitys. It is possible to hunt on your own land, but your sucess will varry based on location and species. Bear baiting can not be done within 1 mile of a cabin so if you wanted to do that on your land you would be looking for a large piece of land.
    It ain't about the # of pounds of meat we bring back, nor about how much we spent to go do it. Its about seeing what no one else sees.
