Arizona Game and Fish
To better assist hunters in their planning, the Arizona Game and Fish Department has enhanced its innovative web-based mapping tool, Recreational Access Arizona, available online at www.azaccessmap.com. Each game management unit (GMU) now includes a link to the wildlife manager's report, providing useful information on where to hunt, which species are in the area, unit boundaries, and more. These reports include tips collected over time by the unit managers that will answer the most commonly asked questions.
With a few clicks of the mouse, Recreational Access Arizona also lets hunters zoom in on a map of a specific area, view land ownership, find recreational access points, and see where water catchments are located. Recreational Access Arizona is not yet compatible with all devices, but the department plans to upgrade it in the near future.
Recreational Access Arizona features a full range of tools for creating and customizing a personal hunt map with road and topographical information, GPS coordinates, satellite images and much more. Customers can find the answers to most of their questions at any time, day or night, without waiting to make time-consuming phone calls to the department during business hours on weekdays only. The information is now at their fingertips 24/7.
Get started by clicking on the "How to Use the Map" link for easy-to-understand tips. Users can include only the areas, map views and information they want. Hunters also may print out the custom hunt area map.
