Big Game Hunting - There are opportunities to hunt Antelope, Bighorn Sheep, Black Bear, Buffalo, Javelina, Turkey, Mountain Lion, Mule Deer, Elk, and White-tailed Deer.

There is a great deal of elk hunting here in Mohave County. It can be a great experience with the chance to take a trophy of a lifetime. The fall hunts start in August and end on December 31st.

Small Game Species - Arizona is recognized for its abundant small game species. Arizona's small game species include cottontail rabbits, jack rabbits and prairie dogs, upland game birds including Gambel quails, Scaled quail, Mearns' Quail, chukar, grouse, and pheasants. You can also hunt house sparrows, English starlings, and crows.

Migratory game birds such as ducks, geese, swan, sandhill cranes, coot, gallinule, common snipe, mourning and white-winged doves, collared doves, and band-tailed pigeon make for additional hunting opportunities.

Predator Species - Arizona predatory mammals are defined as coyotes, bobcats, foxes and skunks. As of 2009 it is currently NOT LEGAL to NIGHT HUNT.

The bobcat, though seldom seen, is very common and found throughout the state. Coyotes are Arizona’s most common predator and found throughout the entire state. There are three species of fox in Arizona - the red fox, kit fox, and gray fox.

At least four species of skunks are found in Arizona. The most common of the species by far is the cat-sized striped skunk that occurs throughout Arizona. All of the species have scent glands which secrete a secretion of musk that gives them their malodorous reputation.

Arizona Furbearer Species - Arizona fur-bearing mammals are defined as muskrats, raccoons, otters, weasels, bobcats, beavers, badgers, Gunnison Prairie Dogs, and ringtails. No season for the taking of jaguars, ocelots, wolves, or porcupines exists.

A few badgers are undoubtedly taken incidental to pursuing other game, but these numbers too are very small. Beavers may not be hunted in Arizona and may only be trapped.

Muskrats can be found along most of Arizona's perennial rivers and permanent marshes. The number trapped since the late 1980s has been virtually zero.

Otters are very common and may someday soon be managed as a furbearer with a limited number of animals be eligible to be taken by trappers.

Raccoons are a relatively common animal along Arizona's perennial streams, lakes, and reservoirs. Both pursued with dogs as game, and trapped as a fur-bearer, the raccoon is somewhat unique in that it is the only animal in Arizona that can be legally taken with a firearm at night.

Ringtails are found in rocky areas throughout Arizona with about the only areas devoid of ringtails being flat, alluvial valleys. Ringtail cats are not a target species for trappers and usually taken incidentally.

Weasels are voracious predators, taking cottontail rabbits, hares, and rodents much larger than themselves. They also take birds, snakes, and lizards. The number of weasels trapped in Arizona is insignificant.

Waterfowl Hunting - Arizona falls within the Pacific Flyway, along with 11 other western states. Waterfowl species occurring in the state include both resident and migratory populations. Arizona's waterfowl hunting season usually opens on the first Friday in October and runs into January.

Species included are American Wigeon, Blue-winged Teal, Bufflehead, Canada Geese, Canvasback, Cinnamon Teal, Common Merganser, Gadwall, Green-winged Teal, Mallard, Northern Pintail, Northern Shovler, Redhead, Ring-necked Duck, Ruddy Duck, and the Greater/Lesser Scaup.
