Hunting in Alaska provides the full range of experiences from mountain goats and deer to caribou and bear. It's famous for its huge moose, vast caribou herds, brown bears, Dall sheep, mountain goats and Sitka black-tailed deer.

For many residents of the 49th state, hunting for food is a vital part of their lifestyle and emphasizes self-sufficiency and sustainable use. To preserve this exceptional environment for future generations, hunting regulations are strictly enforced.

If you do plan to hunt during your visit to Alaska, please be sure you understand all the guidelines before you leave home. Hunting regulations and a wealth of other information are available from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Division of Wildlife Conservation.
