Commission to consider amendments to 2021 elk hunts

Posted November 23, 2020

PHOENIX — The Arizona Game and Fish Commission will consider and may approve amendments to Commission Order 4 (elk) and 26 (population management hunts) hunts and permit numbers in some units for the 2021 hunts. 

The proposed amendments, posted online at, will be presented by the Arizona Game and Fish Department for consideration during a public meeting Friday, Dec. 4, in Payson. 

The Commission approved the 2021 elk and population management hunts and permit numbers in December 2019 as part of a two-year hunt recommendation package. The Department is recommending several amendments for the 2021 hunts to better manage elk in flexible management and minimal occurrence zones in Game Management Units 2A, 2B, 2C, 3B, 4A and 4B.
