AS 16.05.343. Auctions or Raffles For Big Game Harvest Permits.
- (a) The department may donate one bison harvest permit each year for a bison from the Delta bison herd for a competitive
auction or raffle. The donation may be made only to a nonprofit corporation established to promote fish and game law
enforcement, subject to the terms of a memorandum of understanding developed by the department.
- (b) The department may donate four elk harvest permits each year for elk from the Etolin Island herd for competitive
auctions or raffles. The donations may be made only to nonprofit corporations based in the state that are established
to promote fish and game management of hunted species, transplantation of species, and use of fish and game populations
for hunting and fishing, subject to the terms of a memorandum of understanding developed by the department.
- (c) The department, subject to regulations adopted by the commissioner, may issue, through a competitive auction or
raffle, up to two harvest permits each year for each of the following big game species: Dall sheep, bison, musk ox,
brown or grizzly bear, moose, caribou, and wolf. Notwithstanding AS 36.30, the department may authorize a qualified organization to
conduct the auction or raffle on behalf of the department. If the department does authorize a qualified organization to
conduct an auction or raffle for a big game species, the department shall make available to a qualified organization
based in the state at least one harvest permit for that species. If the auction or raffle is conducted by a qualified
organization, the organization may retain an amount from the gross proceeds of the auction or raffle equal to the
administrative cost of the auction or raffle plus an amount not to exceed 10 percent of the net proceeds. The proceeds
from the auction or raffle of a big game harvest permit may not be used to make a contribution to any candidate for
political office or to any organization supporting or opposing ballot propositions or to pay expenses associated with
lobbying the legislature or administration. All proceeds from the auction or raffle of the big game harvest permit less
the amount that is retained by a qualified organization under this subsection shall be deposited in the fish and game
fund under AS 16.05.100
. A person who is issued a big game harvest permit under this subsection shall receive upon the person's request a
complimentary hunting license and a big game tag for the big game species for which the big game harvest permit is
issued. A hunting license issued under this subsection must bear the inscription "Governor's license" or a similar
designation. A person who receives a big game harvest permit, hunting license, or big game tag under this subsection
may exercise the privileges conveyed by the permit, license, or tag only in accordance with applicable law. In this
subsection, "qualified organization" means a nonprofit corporation established to promote fish and game law enforcement
or an organization that is established to promote management of hunted game species and use of game populations for
hunting and that complies with applicable laws governing activities under this subsection.
- (d) Auctions and raffles of harvest permits authorized under this section are not subject to AS 05.15.
