-- You must immediately validate your permit by cutting out the month and date of harvest.
-- You must report to ADF&G in Ketchikan in person within 5 days of kill to present your goat horns (with skull cap attached) and submit your completed hunt report.
-- If the goat you harvested using an RG002 permit was a billy, you may obtain a second RG002 permit from the ADF&G office in Ketchikan. If the goat you harvested using an RG002 permit was a nanny, you may not receive a second RG002 permit.
-- If you receive a second RG002 permit, you may not hunt for goat in the same trend count area where the first billy was harvested. (For maps of trend count areas, see http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=huntingmaps.rg002 or contact ADF&G in Ketchikan.)
