Small Game Hunting – Permit Requirements

With the exception of hunting inside the Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge and the Eagle River Management Area, small game hunters do not require a permit. Residents simply require a hunting license and non-residents can either purchase a hunting license or opt for the less expensive small game only license. For additional information about small game hunting regulations and obtaining these permits, visit the Small Game Hunting Regulations page.
