Video makes hunt recommendations process easier to understand  

Posted September 16, 2019


PHOENIX — For those hunters who might find the hunt recommendations process a bit daunting, help has arrived in the form of a short, easy-to-understand video produced by the Arizona Game and Fish Department (AZGFD).

The video can be viewed at

AZGFD is entrusted to conserve and protect more than 800 native wildlife species, which includes a science-based hunt recommendation process designed to ensure sustainable populations of wildlife for future generations to enjoy.

AZGFD makes recommendations regarding the management of game species every two years to the Arizona Game and Fish Commission. The hunt recommendations establish the seasons, dates, bag limits, open areas and permit-tag allocations based on the framework of the hunt guidelines set by the Commission.

All questions or comments about a particular game management unit or hunt are welcome by emailing at, or by calling any of the department’s regional offices statewide and asking to speak to a game management biologist.
