Plan Your Hunt Workbook

Planning a hunt has two basic elements:

  1. Paperwork — including travel plans, gear lists, maps, licenses, permits, tags, contracts with guide or transporters, meal planning, selecting firearms; and
  2. Physical Activities — including conditioning, sighting-in and practicing with the selected firearms or archery equipment, setting-up and testing the equipment you plan to take, and acquiring all gear and packing it for the trip.

Before you begin this workbook you should assemble the following materials:

  • Calendar (for preparation and planning)
  • Reloading manual
  • Alaska atlas or topographic maps
  • Alaska Hunting Regulations booklet
  • Permit applications and supplements (if applicable)
