Arizona Season Dates/Tags
I know Arizona goes in 2 year cycles but the elk guide said something like they are "recommendations". Does anyone know if the seasons and tag numbers will mirror 2020? Like a few units had the archery season pushed back a week or two in 2020....can I expect the same for 2021?
IIRC, there is typically one unit that has a muzzleloader hunt that takes place ahead of the archery season, which is why that archery hunt gets pushed back by a week. But I think the unit rotates each year and I don't know if there would be any way to predict which unit that will be for 2021 until the regulations come out.
You can expect it will not be the same unit.
I got this from AZFG, it might be helpful to ya,
Thanks Robb! How'd you know I was looking at some of those units;-)
Right now 4B already has 10 different seasons and possibly another one or two being added. Oh decisions decisions.
Those hunts they proposing are low elk density-depredation hunts that take place in areas not often elk hunted. Just an FYI
Roy are most of them in the northern portion of the unit? In the checkerboard?
Brett, I believe they rotate the early muzzy hunt and push back the archery hunt between 5B (this year), 22, 7W and 3a3c. I have been looking to find exact units and order to confirm if this is still the case but I can't find it anywhere. Good Luck
22 North rifle is 9/10 - 9/16.
22 South muzzy is 9/10 - 9/16
22 archery is 9/17 - 9/30
All other early archery are 9/10 - 9/23
