BAG LIMIT- Two Caribou, but only one caribou may be taken per permit. When getting permits online, you may automatically be issued 2 permits. If you accidentally obtain more than 2 permits, you can still only harvest 2 caribou, and you must report on all of your permits.

You must carry a valid hunting license and this permit with you while you are hunting. To harvest two caribou, you must have two permits (maximum of two permits per hunter), and you are required to have both permits in your possession while hunting.

You do not need the pink caribou harvest ticket to hunt caribou in the permit hunt area.

Reporting Requirements: Successful hunters must report their take within 5 days of kill by reporting online at http://hunt.alaska.gov, in person, or by mail. If you hunted unsuccessfully or did not hunt you must report within 15 days of the close of season.

If you receive two permits, you are required to submit a separate hunt report for each of the permits prior to the reporting deadline.

PENALTY FOR FAILURE TO REPORT:
If you fail to report, you will not be eligible to receive any permits (Draw, Tier II, Targeted, or Registration, including Tier I Nelchina Caribou) during the next regulatory year. Your name may be turned over to the Alaska State Troopers for enforcement action.
