READ THE REGULATIONS.
It does not matter what someone at the front desk of a ADF&G office; a license vendor or in some cases what one believes an enforcement officer says in response to a question; the bottom line is what the REGULATIONS state.
Not certain about the answer received? Ask to speak with the area biologist at ADF&G or either the sergeant or lieutenant at wildlife enforcement.
When the question is asked have the regulations in hand so the officer or area biologist know specifically what the inquiry is about.
The "bottom" line is the hunter is the one held RESPONSIBLE.
