Alaska Outdoor Digest

The source for important, timely news on hunting, fishing and the outdoors in Alaska.

Our Mission Our Mission

Our mission is to provide Alaska outdoorsmen with the information and news they need to make the most of the outdoors in Alaska.

Alaska is a complex and challenging and glorious and breathtaking place to hunt, fish and explore.The challenges are not just mountain and cold and distance, but the variety of species to pursue and the rules by which we are allowed to enjoy and occasionally harves them.

In this era of declining traditional and trustworthy media, who never did a very good job covering the outdoors anyway, we see unlimited potential to provide you the outdoor news you can use.

To keep watch on the regulators and legislators and competitors who decide and when we wil fish.  To provide timely accurate reports on what’s happening in the field and on the water. To speak loud and often in defense of our sporting heritage and our wild creatures. And to celebrate the legacy, the experience and the wonder of our Great Outdoors, as much as the full stringers and freezers.

We embark on this mission with humility and recognition that we’ll never know it all or be the best fisherman, hunter or story teller you know.  So tell us often how we’re doing, where we’re screwing up and what we need to fix.

What you can expect here is the news that you need to make the most of Alaska’s outdoors (and have a lot of fun along the way):
