As the last of the summer salmon are running and hunting season gets into full swing, the Alaska State and Wildlife Troopers want to remind those spending time in the backcountry to be mindful of the property they are accessing. Alaska has private, public, federal, and Alaska native land allotments scattered throughout the state, each with different access rules and laws. Be familiar with the area that you are accessing and pay attention to trespassing and legal warning signs. It is the hunter’s responsibility to be aware of public and private boundaries. For further information on land ownership and public access information see the Alaska Department of Fish and Game Hunting Regulations.
Download the Ahtna Regional Map app before visiting the region to determine who owns the land you are exploring. Help protect and preserve the lands in the Ahtna region for current and future generations by using them responsibly and purchasing a land use permit. Land Use Permits can be purchased online. If you have any questions please contact the Land Department directly at (907) 822-3476 (Glennallen), (907) 320-0660 (Cantwell) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
