(a) Unless otherwise provided in 5 AAC 84 - 5 AAC 92, no person may take a species of game in any unit or portion of a unit if that person's total statewide take of that species already equals or exceeds the bag limit for that species in that unit or portion of a unit, except as provided in (d) of this section.
(b) The bag limit specified for a subsistence season for a species and the bag limit set for a general season for the same species are not separate and distinct. This means that a person who has taken the bag limit for a particular species under a subsistence season may not after that take any additional animals of that species under the bag limit specified for a general season.
(c) A bag limit applies to a regulatory year unless another time period is specified in the bag limit.
(d) The bag limit specified for a trapping season for a species and the bag limit set for a hunting season for the same species are separate and distinct. This means that a person who has taken a bag limit for a particular species under a trapping season may take additional animals under the bag limit specified for a hunting season, or vice versa.
(e) A hunter who is under 10 years of age may take big game only under the direct, immediate supervision of an adult who is at least 18 years of age, and is a licensed hunter. The supervising adult is responsible for ensuring that all legal requirements are met. The big game animal taken will count against the supervising adult's bag limit. This section does not relieve individuals from complying with big game tag requirements, but does require supervising adults to validate their harvest ticket, or permit, in accordance with 5 AAC 92.010, immediately following the taking of big game under this section.
(f) In Units 1 - 4, a black or brown bear wounded by a person counts against that person's bag limit for the regulatory year in which the bear is taken. However, in Units 1 - 4, a brown bear wounded by a person does not count against that person's one bear every four regulatory years bag limit established in 5 AAC 92.132. In this subsection, "wounded" means there is sign of blood or other sign that the bear has been hit by a hunting projectile.
