State rolls out hunting rules for public input

The state Game and Fish Department will host a series of meetings on proposed recommendations for the 2008-09 Arizona hunting and trapping regulations.

The closest will be in Flagstaff on Thursday, April 10, 6-8 p.m., at the Arizona Game and Fish Department Flagstaff regional office, 3500 S. Lake Mary Rd.

The annual hunting and trapping regulations establish the seasons, season dates, bag limits, open areas, and hunt permit-tag quantities.

During the regional open houses, no formal presentation will be made. However, a knowledgeable staff person will be available to discuss regional hunt recommendations.

If you are unable to attend, the 2008-09 hunt recommendations will be posted on the Game and Fish Department's Web site on Saturday, April 5 and you may download a PDF file to review at your leisure.
