    License Revocation (A.R.S. 17-340) Page 110 You can have your license privileges revoked by the Commission for up to five years for a conviction of: • unlawful taking, selling, offering for sale, bartering or possession of wildlife • careless use of firearms resulting in human injury or death • destroying or injuring livestock or crops while hunting or fishing • acts of vandalism or littering while hunting or fishing • knowingly allowing another person to use your big game tag • unlawful entry on to closed area for purposes of taking wildlife • unlawful posting of state or federal lands • license fraud • unlawful use of aircraft to take wildlife • waste of game meat • guiding without a license Additional convictions may result in license privileges being revoked for longer periods up to permanently. I don't believe shooting within 440 yards of occupied building is a revocable offense, and they can only revoke your license if your convicted. If your not convicted they cant revoke your license. They can however hit you with a civil penalty without a conviction

    Help Arrest this poacher!

    Unless it has changed AZGFD when assessing civil penalties considers an elk with 6 points or more a "trophy" which carries an automatic $8,000 fine regardless if it is a 240" bull or 400+

    G&F misleading public

    I'm curious how many BP agents on any given day are assigned to the area lets say from Nogales to Sasabee? 1, 10, 50, 100? I can tell you there is 1 WM assigned to all of 36B&C. I have been hunting 36B on and off for the last 20 years and in that time once I get 10 yards from my truck I can count on one hand the number of times I have run into a BP agent in the field, the same can be said for the WM. On every hunt I have been on in 36B at some point I can guarantee you I will glass up or run into UDA's. Enforcement really???

    Just a guess but maybe it has to do with population size? More mule deer compared to whitetail.

    It seems to me that they did ban all out of state cervid animal parts that may be responsible for the spread of CWD. They just went the extra step adding velvet.

    👍 After reading that document I mentioned it just seems the AZGFD isn't reinventing the wheel when it comes to CWD management they're basically falling the exact same guidelines as a lot of other states. I know if I was the one tasked with disease detection, management and spread for the department I would probably error on the side of caution.

    What does your buddy think about how Montana is dealing with CWD in its state? Does he think all the regulations are over kill or does he think they're going about it the right way?

    I'm just curious is the Montana Game and Fish telling you there are no velvet restrictions or friends? • Skull plates or antlers with no meat or tissue attached . Why include antlers in your restrictions if your not worried about meat or tissue. Again I'm just curious. If you're interested there is a pretty good document the Michigan DNR put out. If you type in Chronic Wasting Disease and Cervidae Regulations in North America in a search engine it is a 9 page document of all 50 states and I believe 9 Canadian provinces.

    your saying velvet isn't considered a tissue

    Take a look at Montana's regulations, when they say • Skull plates or antlers with no meat or tissue attached I would assume that means no velvet. So far every state that has restrictions has this clause. If CWD infects enough animals, it will probably reduce the herd in the long term. Other states have seen deer populations decline when CWD infects 20 to 40 percent of a herd. In Wyoming, heavily-infected herds of mule deer declined 21 percent per year and whitetails declined by 10 percent. Colorado saw a 45 percent decline in infected mule deer herds over 20 years. Clearly, if left unchecked, CWD could result in largescale population declines. This is from Montana website. Arizona is surrounded by CWD positive states so why wouldn't the state do everything it can to try and keep the disease out as long as possible.

    G&F misleading public

    Deer and elk hunters headed to the field this fall should be aware that a number of states have adopted new regulations pertaining to the transportation of hunter-harvested deer and elk. These regulations are in response to growing concerns about the spread of CWD, and are an attempt to minimize the risk of spreading the disease into new areas. The number one objective in the management of CWD is to prevent its spread. One theoretical mode of disease transmission is via infected carcasses. Since the suspected infective agent (prion) is concentrated in the brain, spinal cord and lymph glands, the most common regulation is the prohibition of the importation of whole carcasses harvested from CWD areas. Some states, like Colorado, also have established regulations addressing the transport of deer and elk out of CWD areas. Generally, states that have adopted carcass transportation regulations do not allow the importation of any brain or spinal column tissue and allow transport of only the following: • Meat that is cut and wrapped (either commercially or privately). • Quarters or other portions of meat with no part of the spinal column or head attached. • Meat that has been boned out. • Hides with no heads attached. • Clean (no meat or tissue attached) skull plates with antlers attached. • Antlers with no meat or tissue attached. • Upper canine teeth, also known as “buglers,” “whistlers,” or “ivories.” • Finished taxidermy. The following states and provinces have adopted some form of carcass transportation regulations: • California • Colorado • Illinois • Iowa • Manitoba • Michigan • Minnesota • North Dakota • New Mexico • New York • Oregon • Rhode Island • South Carolina • Utah • Vermont Since these regulations are continually evolving, it is recommended that before hunting hunters check the CWD regulations in their home state, the state in which they will be hunting and states in which they will travel through en route home from their hunting area. Most state wildlife agencies provide regulations information on their websites, and may be accessed through the CWD Alliance website’s CWD LINKS page http://www.cwd- Its just a matter of time before all states have regulations that have something to do with CWD

    AZ isn't the only western state doing this.
