Hunter Education in Alaska
Hunter education training is a good investment. Certified hunters are involved in fewer accidents and less frequently get in trouble afield. Our experience has been that even adult hunters benefit from this training, and we recommend it for all hunters. The training is available all across North America from volunteer instructors certified by state or provincial wildlife agencies. Hunter education is required to hunt in some areas of Alaska, consult the current Alaska Hunting Regulations for requirements.
Alaska does not require wearing hunter orange clothing, but investigators consistently have found that it reduces hunting accidents. Hunter orange also helps you keep track of partners in the field.
