Kingman, AZ -(Ammoland.com)- The Arizona Game and Fish Department (AZGFD) is seeking public comments on draft 2015-2016 regulations for reptiles, raptors, crustaceans and mollusks, and amphibians.

Public comment will be accepted from June 6 through July 11, 2014. If warranted, public meetings on the proposed changes to these commission orders may be held in Phoenix, Tucson and/or Flagstaff.

The proposed changes being considered for the 2015-2016 commission orders include:

In Commission Order 25, a reduced bag limit for the nonresident peregrine falcon hunt, adjustment of the hunt units for ferruginous hawks, and clarification of peregrine falcon harvest capture age.

In Commission Order 43, a reduced bag limit for Sonoran mud turtle from four to two (possession limit remains the same), and changing “Limited Weapon” season to “Limited Weapon Hand or Hand-held Implement” season, which opens more of the state to traditional means of hunting reptiles.

Commission Order 25 (Raptors)

Commission Order 41 (Amphibians)

Commission Order 43 (Reptiles)

Commission Order 42 (Crustaceans and Mollusks)
