General | December 3, 2021

Below is a news release from the Arizona Game and Fish Department.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department’s proposed recommendations for 2022 pronghorn, elk, fall turkey and population management hunts, and for 2023 spring turkey hunts, are available for review at www.azgfd.gov/huntguidelines.

The hunt structures and recommendations were formulated based on the hunt guidelines approved by the Arizona Game and Fish Commission.

All questions or comments about a particular game management unit or hunt can be emailed to AZHuntGuidelines@azgfd.gov. The public also is invited to call any of the department’s regional offices statewide and ask to speak with a game management biologist. No formal presentations are planned.

The proposed hunt recommendations will be presented to the commission for its consideration during a public meeting Dec. 10 at Four Points by Sheraton Yuma, 2030 S. Avenue 3 E, in Yuma. The agenda will be posted at www.azgfd.gov/commission.

Additionally, AZGFD posted the draft proposed hunt guidelines for the 2023-2024 through 2027-2028 hunting seasons. The draft proposed hunt guidelines, public comments and commission memo addressing those comments can be viewed at https://www.azgfd.com/Hunting/Guidelines/.
