Municipal Requests for Hunt Record and Transporter Activity Report Data

Effective August 8, 2018, the Alaska State Legislature enacted HB 267, allowing certain data regarding big game hunting records to be released to municipalities that have adopted ordinances to tax Registered Guide-Outfitters, Master Guide-Outfitters, and Transporters, whose licenses are regulated by this agency and the Big Game Commercial Services Board. This data is confidential per 08.54.760; distribution or release of this information by the requesting agency or its staff is punishable as a crime under AS 11.56.850-860. The fee for each quarter requested is $500. Please contact program staff for more information at (907) 465-2543.

Workers' Compensation Insurance Required

Assistant Guides are employees for workers' compensation purposes, and therefore workers' compensation insurance is required. Call the Alaska Division of Workers' Compensation Special Investigations Unit at (907) 269-4002 with compliance questions.

Sample Contracts

Alaska Statute 08-54-680 and regulations under 12 AAC 75 require Registered Guide-Outfitters and Transporters to provide a written contract to clients. Sample contracts are provided below. The contracts below may be used to meet the requirements in statute and regulation, or a licensee may choose to develop his/her own personalized contracts. It is very important that the contracts utilized meet all the specific requirements listed in AS 08.54.680 and 12 AAC 75.450 for Transporters, and 12 AAC 75.260 for Registered Guide-Outfitters.
