Alaskans love to hunt. We love the outdoors, our guns and our trophies. All Alaskans agree our state affords some of the world’s best opportunities for the hunter in all of us. One hunter was reminiscing with me about his hunting exploits, and impressed upon me the need for solitude when hunting. No one else can be around, he said, “not even my shadow.”

Alaska’s resident hunters have a lot of shadows these days, however. Congested hunting areas are a growing challenge for all of Alaska’s hunters. This is particularly true on state land where the number of hunting guides is unrestricted. Many of these areas are in the most accessible parts of our state and the most valuable to resident hunters. Sometimes it seems like every hunter has a story of a bad encounter with a rogue hunting guide interfering with or spoiling their family expedition.
