Hunting, Fishing, and Trapping in Alaska during COVID-19

Hunting, fishing, and trapping activities are important to many Alaskans and non-residents. Hunters, anglers, and trappers are reminded that all seasons remain open as scheduled during the COVID-19 pandemic unless changed by emergency order. All emergency orders and announcements can be found here

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game reminds everyone that the Health Mandates issued by the State are continually being updated to provide guidance for traveling both to and within Alaska. These plans are critical to ensure the health of participants and Alaska communities.

Details regarding specific requirements can be found at As we learn more about the COVID pandemic, mandates and associated requirements will change. Please check this website frequently for updates.

We are all in this together. Hunters, anglers, and trappers are asked to lead by example, follow the current health mandates, and be respectful of the communities in which we live and through which we travel. It is possible, even with the current restrictions, to get out and enjoy the great outdoors.

Be safe, be respectful, and may your hunting, fishing, and trapping adventures be successful in every way possible.
