Coyote hunting contests prohibition takes effect
The Arizona Game and Fish Department has issued a reminder that a new rule prohibiting organized hunting contests for predatory and fur-bearing animals took effect Nov. 3, 2019.
The rule does not apply to lawful hunting of predatory and fur-bearing animals – which is a valuable wildlife management tool – outside of contests. It also does not apply to events such as fishing tournaments.
