I now know that all of the wonderful reports regarding Browning's customer service that I have heard over the years are true. I sent them a Recon Force Extreme trail camera that had been damaged by vandals and when they determined that it couldn't be repaired they sent me a new camera without charge. Amazing!
I worked for ADOA in procurement retired now
Do you have Lynx in Arizona?
If you are going to close or impose restrictions at the lakes than maybe you need to give partial refunds on fishing licenses.
when does the deer draw start?
Is there a possible open date to more lakes
Including saguaro
I wish azgfd would work with the forest service they had quite a few of the access roads locked just in time for the start of turkey season. It's no wonder hunter numbers are declining. In past years they have started so called controlled burns on opening day,and banned camping.
Are there any restriction at Woods Canyon Lake or Willow Springs Lake? Are they open for fishing?
So great to see. And to see eaglets too. We need more enlarge and assure the survival of bald eagles.
When does the Deer Draw start?
These are Bald Eagles nesting in a Saguaro, they say this the first time this been seen since the thirties.

Our Story

The Arizona Game and Fish Department is the state agency charged with conserving the entire range of wildlife within our borders, from big game such as elk and deer to smaller mammals, reptiles and fish. The Department is one of the nation’s leading proponents of the “North American Model of Wildlife Conservation,” which relies on sound science, public participation, active habitat management, strict regulation and active law enforcement to sustain wildlife populations.

The Seven Core Concepts of the North American Model are:
1. Wildlife is held in the public trust.
2. Commerce in wildlife is regulated
3. Hunting and angling laws are created through public process
4. Hunting and angling opportunities for all
5. Hunters and anglers fund conservation
6. Wildlife is an international resource
7. Science is the basis for wildlife policy

Whether or not you participate in hunting and angling, people interested in wildlife and its future should understand the role sportsmen play in conservation. Hunters, anglers and shooters actively support wildlife conservation by buying licenses and paying taxes on hunting, fishing and shooting equipment. If hunting and angling were to end, funding for wildlife conservation, including enforcement of all wildlife laws, would be in jeopardy.

Along with helping ensure the future of our wildlife assets, Game and Fish oversees other outdoor recreational activities in the state. The Department is responsible for registering Arizona watercraft, enforcing boating safety laws and educating the public on safe boating practices. Game and Fish also enforces the state’s Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) laws. We are a proud member of Arizona’s law enforcement community.

Conserving Arizona wildlife, managing delicate habitat, catching poachers, regulating hunting and fishing, patrolling the state’s lakes and rivers, protecting endangered species, and helping boaters and off-roaders enjoy Arizona’s wildlife and an array of outdoor recreational opportunities is all in a day’s work for the Arizona Game and Fish Department.
