New Hunting Laws in Alaska

(A) You must not operate aircraft in any manner for hunting ungulates, bears, wolves or wolverines or for transporting hunters or species harvested in the Noatak Controlled Use Area for the period August 15 to September 30. The area includes the portion of Unit 23 in a corridor that extends 5 miles on both sides of the Noatak River, from the mouth of the Noatak River and upstream to the mouth of Sapun Creek. This closure does not apply to the transportation of hunters or parts of ungulates, bears, wolves or wolverines on scheduled flights to municipalities of airlines that normally offer scheduled flights. The law firm Trustees for Alaska filed the lawsuit on behalf of 13 clients: Alaska Wildlife Alliance, Alaska Wilderness League, Alaskans FOR Wildlife, Center for Biological Diversity, Coalition to Protect America`s National Parks, Copper Country Alliance, Defenders of Wildlife, Denali Citizens Council, Humane Society of the United States, National Parks Conservation Association, Northern Alaska Environmental Center, Sierra Club and Wilderness Watch. Alaska`s wolf hunting season began on August 1. Under the National Park Service`s new rule, hunters are now allowed to legally kill nursing mothers in caves with their puppies in many national reserves. Together, Alaska`s National Preserves cover an area the size of South Carolina. “This verdict is important. The court concluded that the current rule is illegal and that the Park Service actually has the authority to protect the national interest on federal public lands,” said Jim Adams, Alaska regional director for the National Parks Conservation Association.

Unfortunately, even in the short term, he maintained the illegal rule, endangering bears and wolves and violating the agency`s mission and core values. The NPCA has been fighting for decades for reasonable regulation of hunting in Alaska`s parks, and we will continue to push to end this horrible rule. Throughout the United States, state administration is often coordinated in cooperation between state and federal agencies. For years, Alaskan authorities have not lobbied for national wildlife preserves to allow the most aggressive forms of hunting, some of which were previously illegal under state law. That began to change in the early 2000s, when Alaska Governor Frank Murkowski lobbied to implement the state`s intensive management law and reduce predators in national nature reserves. This final rule establishes regulations for seasons, crop limits, and methods and means related to the removal of wildlife for subsistence purposes in Alaska for the 2022-2023 and 2023-24 regulatory years. The Federal Council of Subsistence (the Council) completes the biennial process of revising the regulations on subsistence hunting and trapping in even-numbered years and the regulations on subsistence fishing and shellfish in odd-numbered years; Public application and examination procedures took place the previous year. The Council also considers customary and traditional conditions of use during the applicable two-year cycle. This rule also revises the usual and traditional wildlife use regulations, general regulations and a deferred proposal from the last round of fish. (C) Except for the access and transportation of wildlife harvested from Sourdough and Haggard Creek, Middle Start Printed Page 44872 Fork Trails or other trails designated by Council, you may not use motorized vehicles for subsistence hunting in the sourdough controlled use area. The sourdough controlled use area comprises that portion of Unit 13B bounded by a line beginning at the confluence of the Sourdough and Gulkana rivers, then north along Sourdough Creek to Richardson Highway at approximately Mile 148, then north along Richardson Highway to Middle Fork Trail at approximately Mile 170, then west along the path leading to the Gulkana River. then south along the east bank of the Gulkana River to its confluence with Sourdough Creek, the starting point.

(B) You may not use motorized vehicles, except aircraft, boats or snowmobiles used to hunt and transport a hunter or parts of animals harvested from August 1 to November. 30 in the Naknek Controlled Use Area, which includes all of Naknek River Watershed 9C upstream of the King Salmon Creek watershed; However, you can use a motorized vehicle on the Naknek-King Salmon, Lake Camp and Rapids Camp roads, as well as on the King Salmon Creek Trail and the frozen surfaces of the Naknek and Big Creek rivers. Hunting seasons also vary by place of residence; Not all seasons are open to non-residents. In years when wild herds are small or limited, foreigners are often excluded from hunting. Hunting licenses and tags can be purchased online from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. The repeal of a rule banning controversial hunting practices in Alaska`s national preserves has raised concerns that the National Park Service is ceding control to states with less conservation-oriented goals.
