Unique Verification Code (UVC) Information for Guides

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game requires a Unique Verification Code (UVC) for non-resident draw hunt applications that require a guide-client contract. Guides may only obtain the unique verification code (UVC) by contacting our office at BigGameCommercialServicesBoard@Alaska.Gov.

To qualify for your UVC, you must have a current GUA registration on file for the year of the application for the draw AND the year the hunt takes place prior to the client applying for the drawing hunt permit. Starting October 2020, a UVC code will be issued for each GUA that a guide has that is eligible.

UVC’s are confidential and Guides are encouraged to register their hunters in the drawings to protect themselves from violating Alaska Statute 08.54.720 Unlawful Acts.
