About the Subsistence User's Guide
Do you find the Federal Subsistence Management Program and hunting and fishing regulations confusing? If so, you are not alone.
Denali National Park and Preserve and the Denali Subsistence Resource Commission (SRC) developed this guide to clarify complicated regulations for subsistence users. This guid contains important information including; qualifications for hunting, trapping and fishing, various ways you can access hunting areas in the park, ideas on how you can participate in the regulatory change process, use of cabins, collection of fire wood and other topics.
Although Federal subsistence hunting and trapping opportunities are not limited to National Park Service lands, this guide is d signed to provide information specific to Denali. You should consult other agencies about subsistence programs on their lands.
Denali National Park and Preserve and the Denali Subsistence Resource Commission are committed to providing the opportunity for rural Alaskans engaged in a subsistence way of life to continue to do so. Park staff and the Commission are working to protect subsistence opportunities by conserving natural and healthy fish and wildlife populations. Input from subsistence users is crucial to the subsistence management program at Denali. Please participate by attending SRC meetings or sharing your concerns with us.
