    go into the bowhunting section on adfg... and look at the definaitions..... lighted knocks are not https://secure.wildlife.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=regulations.bowhunting
    NOT use electronic devices or light attached to the bow, arrow, or arrowhead with the exception of a non-illuminating camera.

    NOT use scopes or other devices attached to the bow or arrow for optical enhancement.

    NOT use any mechanical device that anchors a nocked arrow at full or partial draw unaided by the bowhunter

    Vince, page 20 of the 2010-2011 hunting regulations says (with the exception of a non-illuminating camera or a lighted nock on the end of the arrow.)

    there is nothing saying serrated edges are illegal on that page Vince posted.

    If thats the case I know a ton of stickbow guys shooting file sharpened broadheads that are illegal! I dont think anyone who shoots them will question they arent sharp OR serrated due to the file sharpening techniqe. I prefer a smooth lansky edge only because my file sharpening skills STINK LOL.

    I also believe due to the definition of broadhead that knapped heads are legal on all game. They have been for a few years now, cant remember when they changed from 'metal cutting edges' to 'sharp cutting edges'. If I remember right it was 02 or 01. I know due to the rule, I tried knapping in 02, talk about painful in many more ways then one. Found glass shards for months shew!

    That page Vince linked is not the current regs. Lighted nocks are now LEGAL. I'm going to send an email to them so they will update that link.
