Got Game and Fish concerns? Here's your chance

Don Martin
The Great Outdoors

It has been a long, long time since the Arizona Game and Fish Commission has met in Kingman, and I hope sportsmen will use this opportunity to show up and speak to the commission about any issues they have with this region or in the state.

The first meeting is a "meet and greet" on Friday. It will start at 8 a.m. in the Mohave County Board of Supervisors auditorium. This meeting will end at about 10 a.m.

Region III Supervisor Tom Finlay will give a presentation on the region's habitat improvements, pronghorn and bighorn sheep, transplants, wildlife areas and species updates.

Finlay will also report on the region's outreach activities, human/wildlife conflicts, watercraft revenue report, fisheries and conservation mitigation program, along with law enforcement updates.

This will be followed by an opportunity for the public to ask questions of the commission and Region III personnel.

Starting at about 10:30 a.m., the commission will hold its regular business meeting.

This includes a call to the public.

Friday's agenda includes a presentation by Coconino County Sheriff Bill Pribble, who would like the commission to approve a bonus point for anyone who purchases a retail discount card that benefits any Arizona Search and Rescue organization.

At 8 a.m. Saturday in the same location will be another call to the public, which allows people to speak for three minutes on any topic. The commission will also accept comments on specific agenda items.

The agenda for this weekend's meeting can be found by going to

For many years I have heard local sportsmen talk about issues that they don't believe that the regional office or the commission is interested in hearing about.

I don't agree with that, and here is why

When there are public meetings here about proposed season dates, rules or regulations, very few sportsmen bother to show up.

Hopefully this will not be the case on Friday and Saturday, but I think attendance will be down on Friday as a lot of local sportsmen will be at work.

I don't believe there will be a big turnout on Saturday either, and that is a shame.

I personally appreciate the department and commission for coming to Kingman and conducting a meeting here.

Mohave County hasn't had a commissioner from here since the 1990s, so it is nice to see that the current commission hasn't forgotten about us.

Thanks Don,
I was contemplating going to vent my frustrations on the planned future of Pica Camp in unit 10. In reality I’m thinking I’d get more accomplished going to black bridge and yelling at the top of my lungs as a train went by. The answer seems so easy and clear to me. If they close it and try to charge an entry fee pull all hunting tags out of the area and cease and desist all funds and help they are given. Sad fact is not enough people are going to stand up and fight it and it will end up like the X bar one and the ORO ranches where money does all the hunting. So much for all the work our forefathers put into checker boarding the area with state trust land to prevent this very thing that is happening.

Where is the Mohave County Board of Supervisors auditorium located at? [Thanks for pointing this out. An earlier announcement had the address – 700 W. Beale St. in Kingman – but this one didn't.]
