Big game hunting for Mule Deer, wild turkey, Pronghorn, and Bighorn Sheep occurs each year in Arizona.  The hunts are administered by the Arizona Game and Fish Department and cooperatively occur on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) administered public lands.

No gas or other services are available in the hunting areas, nor is drinking water provided. Animal densities are generally low. Weather conditions can change quickly and vary widely. Be prepared for a rugged hunt that should provide memories for a lifetime.

Hunting Seasons

Check on specific hunting season dates and permit requirements with the Arizona Game and Fish Department.  They publish an annual guide to hunting regulations in Arizona that lists all the season dates.
