Guide Use Area Maps

What is a Guide Use Area? The State of Alaska is divided into 26 Game Management Units (GMU). The Big Game Commercial Services Board has divided each GMU into "Guide Use Areas" (GUA). Some GMUs have only one GUA while others have multiples GUAs.

A Master/Registered Guide-Outfitter must register with the Department the GUA which they will be providing big game services in annually, at least 30 days prior to providing big game services.

All GUAs expire annually on December 31, however there are multiple year registrations.

It is unlawful for a Master/Registered Guide-Outfitter to contract, to provide big game services in a GMU for which they are not certified or a GUA they are not registered for.

The maps listed below went into effect on April 10, 2010. The previous maps can be viewed, for reference only: Archived Maps

NOTE: New Guide Use Area (GUA) boundary changes went into effect January and July of 2012. All guides should check the new supplemental maps to see if this affects your land use. The main GUA maps below will be updated shortly.
