Arizona's Waterfowl Season
Arizona's Second General Waterfowl Season Continues Into 2020
December 1, 2019
The general waterfowl and snipe seasons in the "Desert Zone" (Game Management Units 10 and 12B through 46B, and those portions of Units 6 and 8 within Yavapai County) runs through Jan. 26, 2020.
Meanwhile, the general waterfowl and snipe seasons in the "Mountain Zone" (Game Management Units 1-5, 7, 9, 11M, 12A, and those portions of Units 6 and 8 within Coconino County) continue through Jan. 12, 2020.
The following are legal wildlife in both Mountain and Desert zones: ducks, including mergansers, coots and common moorhens (gallinules); white geese (snow, blue and Ross'); and dark geese (Canada and white-fronted).
Scaup can be harvested in the Mountain Zone beginning Saturday through Jan. 12, 2020, and in the Desert Zone from Nov. 2 through Jan. 26, 2020.
All waterfowl hunters 10 and older must possess a valid Arizona hunting license, and those 16 and older must also possess a federal migratory bird stamp - like a federal duck stamp.
In addition, waterfowl hunters 18 or older must have a state migratory bird stamp -this stamp is included in the purchase of a youth combination hunt and fish license.
Keep in mind that a combination hunt and fish license is only $20 more - for state residents - than the price of an individual hunting or fishing license.
As a reminder, a youth combination hunt and fish license for ages 10 to 17 is $5 and includes the privileges associated with the state migratory bird stamp.
