    Make sure it's a guide that you're talking to.

    full cry what matt is trying to say.. is that AK requires you to contract a guide. end of story.. hunts, game etc may not be traded by AK law... if your interested in a referal for some guides let us know.. i really recomend Coke Wallis out of healy.. but he is just one. save your pennies.. all $12k or more worth of them.. and come hunting..

    on a personal note... what cat is worth one of our sheep? LOL better find some stone or RMBH to swap for...

    Hunt swapping is iilegal in Alaska. It might be possible to barter with an Alaskan guide, would have to double check that. You would need to be guided anyway as a non-resident.

    Then you have that most cat hunts top out around 5k and a Dall Sheep hunt can run 12k and up.

    Good luck in your efforts.

    Charge him double for the cat to even things out.
    Good point on the Barter/trade thought. I do not know if a guide has to accept $$$ as consolation or if it is up to his/her descretion.
    Just make sure (go over it with an enforcement officer) before you get in too deep!

    Not a trade but a one for one, sounds fair....I will buy you a guided dall sheep hunt with a classy outfitter if you buy me a bighorn sheep hunt, heck I'll even settle for a sheep hunt in the desert mountains of Mexico where you can actually stretch the American dollar....

    A guide doesn't have to charge anything. There's no law that a guide has to accept money. He or she have to be there by statute, after that the state has no interest in the remuneration part.

    What if an Alaskan wanted to come down to Louisiana and I took them out an let them shoot a few alligators with me(legal down here) and in return they had me up fishing or black bear / deer hunting with them. I'd pay my part of the trip with them, splitting the cost of the alaska trip. Would that be legal?

    Nothing illegal about friends hunting with friends. That being said there can be no qid pro quo (this for that), cost spit evenly between the parties. Document cost and who paid what. My understanding is 50 50 with each person spending the same.

    The operative word is "compensation". Are you "compensating" me for taking you by taking me gator hunting? Are you "compensating" me by buying me a new hat? Would the fish cop think so? .....

    Its shades of gray and not really worth the heartache IMO.

    Choose your own poison of course.

    Its legal for you to fish and hunt black bear here on your own. For sheep,goat and griz you need a guide or 2nd degree of kinship or live here. Non res can hunt everything else without a guide or Alaskan along
