Permits Available for Interior Alaska Hunts

Surplus drawing permits for moose hunting in Interior Alaska will be issued on a first come-first served basis to hunters whose faxed applications are received at the Fairbanks Fish and Game office beginning April 11, 2011 at 8:00 am Alaska time. The application deadline is June 10 at 5:00 pm Alaska time.

Permit applications are available from any Fish and Game office, and on the internet at “http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?a dfg=huntlicense.undersubscribed,” but the website does not allow hunters to apply online at this time. Applications must be faxed to the Fish and Game office in Fairbanks at (907) 459-7332. Hunters must complete and sign the application themselves. Faxes received before April 11 at 8:00 am Alaska time are not eligible.

“Drawing permits are usually issued by random lottery, but we received fewer applications for these particular hunts this year, so not all of the permits were awarded,” said Management Biologist Doreen Parker McNeill. “The Board of Game allows us to decide whether or not to issue unused permits, and this year we will again make them available.”

Some of the permits are reserved by regulation for guided nonresident hunters. Guide–client agreements must be in place prior to applying for these permits.

McNeill cautioned hunters that getting to the hunt areas can be difficult and expensive. Antler restrictions, requirements to leave meat on the bone, and other limiting conditions apply in most of these hunts. “It’s a good idea to read the specific hunt conditions and season dates before applying,” she said. For example, permits available for the eastern headwaters of Unit 20B is for hunters using muzzleloading firearms only. Hunters should understand accessibility limitations before applying for these hunt areas. Specific information for these hunts can be found in the “2010–2011 Alaska Winter Drawing Permit Hunt Supplement” available at Fish and Game offices and online at “www.hunt.alaska.gov” under “Undersubscribed Draw permits available in Interior,” or go directly to “http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?a dfg=huntlicense.undersubscribed.” Hunters with questions about the application process for these hunts can call (907) 459-7272.
