Dove, Crane Regulations Available Now

Dove, Crane Regulations Available Now


Dove and sandhill crane regulations have now been posted on the Arizona Game and Fish Department Web site at http://www.azgfd.gov.

You can download a copy of the 2012 crane regulations at http://www.azgfd.gov/regs/craneregs.pdf or the dove regulations at http://www.azgfd.gov/regs/doveregs.pdf.

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). The deadline to apply for the crane hunt-permit applications 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.

Dove hunters may also want to visit our updated dove hunting pages at http://www.azgfd.gov/dove. For those hunters on the go, visit our mobile-friendly dove page at http://www.azgfd.gov/m.dove, which offers the bare necessities for dove hunters.
