Subsistance hunt in Alaska

8 posts in this topic

In Western Alaska we are allowed to subsistance hunt birds. Subsistance means shoot what you want to consume, Federal regulations. Here was our hunt from this past weekend before the sporting season started. Now it is a 10 bird limit per day with 30 in possession. The tundra swans in the photo taste INCREDIBLE.

I read somewhere that only Alaska native people, Eskimos, Aleuts etc. were allowed to subsistence hunt and that temporary residents were prohibited. Have they changed the law? I know the Feds. can do marvelous things!! grin.gif

Temp residents are in fact prohibited from partaking in subsistance. You have to have lived in the area for 1 year with the intent to stay.

      What are your guys thought on what this warm weather is going to do to the lakes. I hope it gets warm enough to settle the snow and allow the slush that is out there to freeze.

      Things have become pretty hit or miss for my house out there.  I fished last week from Tuesday through Sunday; alas, school started yesterday so it's back to the real world for now.  During afternoon primetime, I caught between zero fish (yes, I got skunked one night) and 12.  Daybite was very tough (mainly because I quit fishing and either went hiking over at Kathio, tip-up fishing in the bays, or went down and looked at guns at Boone's), but the reports I heard from those fishing hard during the day made that decision fairly easy.     The overnight bite was pretty steady, with multiple fish each night coming on the rattle reels.  I pulled the lines twice because I got sick of catching 15-17'' walleyes.    Sunrise was also hit or miss.    All in all, it's not early ice anymore, that's for sure.  I'm still fishing fairly shallow, and it might be time to move the house.  Biggest fish all weekend was just under 28''.  I still have only one keeper in my current location despite catching well over 100 walleyes there in the last few weeks.  The last week or so was pretty strange...at least two nights either me or my friend caught more than 10 fish while the other guy, fishing less than 15 yards away, caught very few.  Why the fish can be loaded in one spot and non-existent a few feet away, and then switch the next night so the "hot" house goes cold, is a mystery to this fisherman. Maybe they swim counter-clockwise around the lake one night and then turn around and swim clockwise the next?
