Arizona Dove and Crane Regulations Now Viewable
Dove and sandhill crane regulations have now been posted on the Arizona Game and Fish Department website at www.azgfd.gov.
Please keep in mind that there is a drawing for the available sandhill crane permits and you must apply by mail only (it's not part of the online process). You can begin applying for the crane hunt-permit applications starting Aug. 6 and the deadline to apply is Aug. 31.
Don't forget that starting last year dove and other small game hunters gained access to around 1 million acres of land around municipalities.
Once again, the Game and Fish Commission has set the bag limit for both mourning dove and white-winged dove at 10 birds per day, and are continuing the all-day shooting hours from ½ hour before sunrise until sunset - statewide.
