ranch Rules

All persons must follow all Ranch Rules as well as all applicable State Laws and Regulations.  These rules apply to hunting and recreation on all private lands and State Trust Lands on the Bar T Bar Ranch.  Violation of Ranch Rules or applicable State Laws or Regulation may result in immediate cancellation of the Ranch Access Pass, expulsion from the Ranch, and loss of privilege to hunt or recreate on this and all other Ranches enrolled in the Arizona Game and Fish Department’s Landowner Compact Program.

Recreational Users must have in their possession a valid Ranch Access Pass and copy of, or ability to demonstrate knowledge of, Ranch Rules.  In addition Recreational Users are required to have in their possession either a valid hunting license (and be scouting for or in pursuit of legal game) or a valid State Land Department Recreation Permit when recreating on State Trust Lands.  Bar T Bar Ranch Access Passes may be obtained from the Meteor Crater RV park gas station/convenience market or on-line at this site.

Only non-vehicular access for the purpose of hunting is allowed in the Meteor Crater Closure Area.  The following state and private sections comprise the Meteor Crater Closure Area:  within T19N R12E – sections 1, 2, 13, 23, 24, 25, 26, 35, and 36; within T19N R 12.5E – sections 2, 3, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 34, 35, and 36; within T19N R13E – sections 30 and 31; within T18N R13E – section 6.

During these periods off road vehicle travel will be restricted to quad, or side-by-side all-terrain vehicles.
