September is when fall hunting season begins throughout Alaska, including Kenai. For many regions, it’s open season for moose, Dall sheep, deer and caribou. Big game hunting requires harvest tickets or registration, and harvest reports are due within 15 days of when the season closes.

Kenai Peninsula is Game Management Unit (GMU) 15 in Alaska, and every GMU has different rules and regulations. Limits are enforced differently for residents and non-residents, so you will want to check on the rules beforehand. Understanding the processes and rules for non-residents (and even residents!) can be confusing, which is why it’s best to trust a hunting outfit to take care of the paperwork so you can simply enjoy the hunt.

A Hunter’s Helper

Kenai is home to a number of guides and outfitters happy to help travelers make the most of their hunting trip. Connect with Arrowhead Outfitters, High Adventure Air Charter, Sportsman Warehouse and of course the Alaska Fish & Game Office to ensure an enjoyable, seamless hunting and fishing experience.

Since rules are subject to change, it’s important to keep an eye on the Fish and Game Wildlife site for the latest updates.
