Arizona Game and Fish Commission OKs hunt guidelines for fall 2023 through spring 2028

Posted April 1, 2022

PHOENIX — The Arizona Game and Fish Commission approved guidelines for fall 2023 through spring 2028 hunting seasons at its public meeting April 1 in Phoenix.

The hunt guidelines provide the biological and social parameters used by wildlife managers when developing the annual hunt recommendations (season structures, season lengths, season dates, permits allocated, etc.) These recommendations result in the hunts in which licensed hunters may participate.

Wildlife is held in the public trust; therefore, using science-based principles to shape the hunt guidelines remains paramount to ensure healthy, sustainable and diverse wildlife populations in perpetuity.

The approved hunt guidelines will not affect any current hunts, but will be adopted early with the upcoming recommendations for fall and spring.
