From the Arizona Game and Fish Department - New rule allows transfer of big game tags to disabled military veterans

Hunting for Heroes helping disabled Law OfficersPhoenix, Arizona - Hunters who won’t be able to use their upcoming Arizona big game hunt permit-tag now have the option of transferring that tag to qualified 501(c)(3) organizations that provide hunting opportunities to veterans with service-related disabilities. The new tag transfer option is the result of legislation sponsored by Representative Frank Pratt (District-8) that went into effect in July.

A tag transfer to a disabled veteran’s 501(c)(3) organization requires a big game tag transfer affidavit of voluntary donation and the tag. Contact the individual 501(c)(3) organization to obtain the transfer affidavit. A list of qualified organizations can be found at www.azgfd.gov/h_f/hunting.shtml (scroll about two-thirds down the page to the tag transfer information). The Arizona Game and Fish Department is unable to reimburse bonus points for transferred tags.

From the Arizona Game and Fish Department - Event raises funds to ‘Save Recreational Shooting in Arizona

Arizona Fish & Game DepartmentPhoenix, Arizona – The future of recreational shooting in Arizona looks a little brighter after a successful fundraising event at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility in Phoenix on Saturday, April 12. The Arizona Game and Fish Department teamed up with TreadLightly! to sponsor the combination fun shoot and dinner party attended by nearly 200 people.

Recreational shooting in Arizona came under increased scrutiny when the Sonoran Desert National Monument, one of the last parcels of public land open to recreational shooting within a 30 mile radius of Phoenix, was ready to ban recreational target shooting. As an alternative to closure, Game and Fish, TreadLightly!, the BLM and the U.S. Forest Service were asked to develop a model public/private partnership to keep Arizona’s public lands open to recreational shooting. This partnership is considered a pilot project that can, when proven successful, be replicated across the nation.
