  • Alaska Draw & Tier II Hunting Information

    Since this comes up often, I thought I'd make a sticky for it. Hopefully this has all the info you need.

    First you need a license!! Licenses, permits, and miscellaneous forms here.

    Alaska Drawing Hunt Information. This is where you need to go to find anything and everything you need to know about when, where, why, and how. Available to residents and nonresidents on a lottery basis, with no point system. Everyone has an equal chance. Drawing supplement and related stats are found at this link.

    Registration Hunt Information. Available year-round (each hunt has its own application period and season dates).

    Tier I & II Information. Available for Alaska residents only. All related Tier I & Tier II info is found at this link.

    Where are these hunts for? This link is for the online mapping homepage. Search for maps by unit/species/etc.

    How do I find out if people are successful on the hunts I might choose? Below are three links to information that may be helpful!!
    General Harvest Reports
    Registration Hunt Summary Statistics
    Drawing/Tier II Summary Statistics

    Did I win?? Check here for each type of permit:

    Online hunt reporting. Great!! You harvested your trophy of a lifetime, now let ADF&G know about it!

    So I'm in the military, drew a tag, now I'm being deployed!! What do I do? Check here. (also applies to Tier II hunts)

    ADF&G Contact info. If you need more help, call someone!

                What's the latest word on going to a Points system in 2010.

                I read in the Huntin' Fool that ADF&G is going this way.

                  Unless things change again...

                  ....the tier I (formerly tier II) caribou is on a points system as of 2009, along with other added modifications. Everyone who applied in '09 got 1 point, if you got a permit, your score reset back to zero.

                  Things will probably change again, at least I hope they do, especially with the moronic Ahtna decisions.

                    no point

                    Except me; I don't think I got a point. When I checked whether I won that permit it seems they don't have record of my application... :mad:

                    Do you suppose they'll put the application online this year instead of the paper application process used last year? Hope so; they seem to do better with those...

                        The Tier I applications were free.

                        I'd like to see them online as well, FamilyMan. I like getting that instant verification.

                            little help.

                            I am relatively new to Ak ( couple years) and am in need of some clarification. What exactly are the draw and tier 1 and 2 hunts? I looked on the ADF&G site but it didn't really spell it out for me. Would those of you with experience help me out? I currently live in Sitka and would like to head North next year for Caribou, moose, or Dall sheep hunts. I'm just trying to figure this out before the deadline.
                            Thanks!!

                              CtP - Drawing permit hunts are those that you must win a permit by lottery (drawing) in order to participate in the hunt. You are allowed to apply for three permits per species per year. While there are plenty of hunts that you can participate in that do not require a drawing permit, some of the more coveted hunts are drawing permit only. Hunts closer to the road system, with lower animal populations, or those that are managed for trophy quality are often those that are restricted to drawing permit. These are generalities, though - it varies quite widely.

                              Tier I and Tier II permits are considered to be subsistence permits. Tier II permits are awarded based upon a hunter's history of using meat from that animal population, their hometown's proximity to the hunt area, and a few other factors. The one Tier I hunt - RC 566 - is a caribou hunt in the Nelchina basin. There is a high demand for that hunt, as it is easily accessible by road and offers good success rates. They've changed the rules on that one many times over the year, but the current deal is that anyone may apply, but if you win a permit you and all family members are not allowed to hunt moose or caribou in any other unit statewide except for Unit 13. You're also required to destroy the trophy value of the antlers and to leave them at the kill site.

                              If you have more questions, let us know. The short answer is that you don't have to apply for or win a drawing permit in order to come north to hunt next year, but in some cases if you win a drawing permit you may have the opportunity to participate in a higher demand hunt with potentially less competition or more animals to choose from. Again, that is speaking generally.
