Arizona Game and Fish to host webcast on comprehensive game management
For those of you who hunt in Arizona, this is a good opportunity to get a feel for how you can learn more about Arizona G&F and learn more about some of the hunting areas in Arizona. I think it's great that entities are starting to offer more webcast features. It's up to us to take advantage of these. This can help us better understand how we can approach hunting other states as well. Here is the press release I received.
PHOENIX – The Arizona Game and Fish Department will host a webcast and public meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 22 at 6:30 p.m. to develop a Comprehensive Game Management Plan (CGMP) for advancing the management of the state’s game animals and their habitats. 

“The vision of Comprehensive Game Management is to develop a tool linking existing management plans with the latest visual data of development paths, wildlife corridors, critical habitat areas, and other data for a holistic view for management,” said Brian Wakeling, chief of game management for Game and Fish.

The public can view the proceedings of the meeting in any of three ways: 
  1. live webcast at www.azgfd.gov/webcast
  2. by video conference at all six regional Game and Fish offices;  
  3. in person at the Game and Fish headquarters office at 5000 W. Carefree Highway in Phoenix.
The public can provide comments and ask questions in person, or via e-mail to webcast@azgfd.gov. Questions e-mailed early in the presentation may be answered during the question-and-answer portion of the meeting; however, all comments will be considered in shaping the plan.

Wakeling added, “We are looking forward to giving this presentation to our constituents and getting their input to help us shape the Comprehensive Game Management Plan that will guide better decisions to protect, restore, and manage game populations in the 21st Century.”
