View Full Version : Alaska Caribou

I am bow hunting for caribou in Alaska in Sept. I have heard several people say that all arrows must have your name and license number on them. I have looked on online and have not found anything about that. If anyone has any information on this i would appreciate it. Thanks.

worst case scenario sharpee them on the vanes... but I doubt that's a regulation...

good luck!

are you hunting from the highway with a bow? ie the haul road?

Unless there are some restrictions on federal land or a military reservation that I am unaware of, you are not required to put information on your arrows. The only things published in the current regulation book that apply to caribou hunting would be a minimum peak draw weight of 40 pounds. The arrow must be 300 grains or heavier, 20" or more in length and the broadhead can't be "barbed". Mechanical/retractable broadheads are now allowed, which is new this year.
Where is hunt going to be?
Best of luck with it.
