While Alaska makes up more than 18 percent of the total land mass of the United States, it only includes 0.22 percent of its population, according to 2008 estimates. Only North Dakota, Vermont and Wyoming have fewer inhabitants. With a total state population approaching 690,000, Anchorage is the largest Alaskan city by far, at a population reaching near 280,000. Fairbanks and Juneau, the capital city, include a population of over 30,000 people each, while the rest of the states cities fall below the 10,000 population mark.

Alaska's demographics include about 75 percent Caucasian, 19 percent American Indian or Alaska Native and about four to five percent African American, Hispanic and Asian each.

These figures indicate Alaska is the least densely populated state in the country, which is one factor in the rich hunting and fishing opportunities. The state is divided into Game Management Units, each with unique wildlife species and fishing and hunting regulations. The Division of Wildlife Conservation in the Alaska Department of Fish and Game oversees the GMU's, with the website, an excellent resource for obtaining specific GMU regulations.
