    Default Rules about shooting near pipeline?

    I'm may be buying some property near the pipeline soon to build a hunting cabin on (about 1.5 miles from the pipeline, according to the real estate agent) and I couldn't find anything in the regs for that GMU that mentioned any restrictions around the pipeline. I'm sure there is some kind of rule about firing in the vicinity of the pipeline, though maybe not at 1.5 miles away. Does anyone know where I might be able to find the info?

    I'd like to be able to hunt on the property, but figured I should make sure it's legal first.

    The other 299,300,000 people can have it.

    Your fine at that distance.

    The access road that the pipe is next to carries the same prohibitions as any roadway for hunting (can't shoot from, on, or across). If you get into the details of the Federal ROW agreement, you are not supposed to shoot at all (hunting or not) within the ROW (300' each side of the pipe) itself.

    If you should shoot from any distance and your bullet hits the pipe or anything related to the pipeline, that is a violation of Federal law. So use due care when hunting in the area.

    Also, if you are going to be on the pipe ROW or access roads at all, you'll want to contact Alyeska and get yourself a RUG (ROW Use Guidelines). You can get this document issued at any Security post.

    My back yard borders on the pipeline right of way. We have hunted there since the 60s. Nothing changed for us when the pipeline went in. Pipe is buried here. I asked one of the Aleyaska guys one day, because we do ride snowmachines in both directions and hunt there as well. His reply, "Just don't do something stupid, like shooting the pipe or supports". Have been checked by the chopper twice in over 30 years. Told them who I was and what I was doing. They told me to have a good time, and not to shoot the pipeline.

    Thanks for the info, looks like I have nothing to worry about so long as I use common sense. now I just need to wait to hear back from the Real estate agent whether my offer has been accepted.

    As sick as that story describes, I busted out laughing when I saw this google-ad at the very bottom of that page:

    funny I think,it would be alot better for him not to be in jail.Give him a job doing something so he can help pay for what he did.Puting him in jail just gives him more.Now we just pay for what he did and him to live.

    I kind of agree. "Let the punishment fit the crime". Force him to work along the pipeline without pay for X amount of time. He should be fed and housed, under supervision and should have to work to maintain the structure he damaged.

    Hmm:
    It was my understanding that only Archers were allowed to hunt along the Pipeline corridor, and NOT gun hunters.

    Maybe that applied to only a portion of the pipeline, though.

    That is only the Dalton Highway corridor (the top half of the line). The southern half of the line has no such restriction. Just look at the map in the game regs to see the 5-mile bow zone.
