    Not likely that a .22 is legal . I think achery and shotgun are but I am not an authority ; this is the authority . What you need to know is listed here.

    yup sure can... you just have to be out of city limits...

    The FMA restrictions are Moose may not be hunted with out a bow...

    you will have to keep all local ordnances in mind when discharging a fire arm... but theres lots of places out on gold stream, the Elliot, Murphy dome, parts of NOPO.. a 22 could safely be used, and often is.. know the area your in well.. keep in mind that though the woods are thick... people don't live to far off.. so practice safty first.

    Title 5 . Fish and Game Chapter 92 . Statewide Provisions Section 530. Management areas

    5 AAC 92.530. Management areas

    The following management areas are subject to special restrictions:

    Great info Vince! I verified the exact same info with ADFG this morning. What he said is exactly right. OUTSIDE city limits the ONLY restriction is when taking moose.

    But definately practice safety first as there are several houses that are set far back in the woods. Mine included. I live outside city limits in north pole and in a heavily wooded area.
