  • Fairbanks Circle Trail Grouse

    Is it illegal to shoot grouse while sitting on your ATV running but not moving on the trail system ?
    Fairbanks Circle Trail is that considered a Constructed Road ?

    Yup. See page 18 of the regs.

        Nope, the bullet statements each stand on their own; you may not do any of the bulleted things, neither individually nor in combination. The one I have circled is not subordinate to the one you are referencing. Thus, to answer your original question you properly read it as: "You MAY NOT take any game by: A motorized land vehicle, unless the motor has been shut off and the progress from the motor's power has ceased." (It does not matter where the motorized land vehicle is located).

            That sounds about right. Motor off, movement stopped, you can use the machine as a rest.

              Correct....unless you're on a road. So NOW you're around to the question of whether the trail you're sitting on is defined as a road. To answer that will require looking up the definition of 'road' in the Alaska statutes...
