Better view on the wildlife Information! Thanks it's was great visiting your fb.
Looking for something to do this weekend? Try your luck fishing at Frances Short Pond! Big rainbow trout arrived Thursday! Try lures, spinners, Joe's Flies... The trout are from Canyon Creek Fish Hatchery and weighing in at about 1- 1.5 lbs!! Don't forget your fishing license and a big net!
Video from the blind of the rocket net being fired in order to trap turkeys in 12A, which were relocated into 13A to help boost populations.
Fishing Report (Scott Rogers Fisheries Program Manager Reg II) Here is a video of a project that we hope will bring better bass fishing to Northern Arizona. With the help of the Kaibab National forest, Trout Unlimited and the Northern Arizona Flycasters, we placed 100 large juniper trees in Dogtown lake this fall. It is our hope to stock bluegill and bass on this new habitat over the next two years. Hope for snow and good luck fishing!!!!

~ Arizona received 83 elk in 1913 from Yellowstone after the native elk, Merriam's, went extinct. Two more translocations followed in Arizona which helped establish our current elk populations.

Love is in the air for Arizona's bald eagles and you can help ensure another successful breeding season by giving them their space. Obeying the following and grounding your drones near nests will help too. Please spread the word!

A mule deer comes into water shortly after the catchment was filled.

In mid-Dec. AZ Game and Fish Officers (Wildlife Managers) assisted Utah Dept. of Natural Resources (DNR) capture 40 mule deer in Hunt Unit 12B. The captured deer were given a health evaluation, had blood drawn, received ear tags, and all were outfitted with new GPS collars to study their migration patterns into Utah over the summer months.

The collared deer will give Utah DNR and AZGFD valuable migration information and contribute to the management of this deer herd that moves between Arizona and Utah.
