PHOENIX — The Arizona Game and Fish Department’s proposed recommendations for the 2023 deer, javelina, bighorn sheep, bison, black bear, mountain lion, sandhill crane, population management, small game, and predatory and fur-bearing mammals seasons, as well as for the 2024 spring javelina, black bear and bison seasons, are available for review at www.azgfd.com/hunting/regulations/hunt-guidelines-process/.
The hunt structures and recommendations were formulated based on the hunt guidelines recently 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 April 14 at department headquarters in Phoenix. The agenda will be posted at www.azgfd.gov/commission.
