Black Bear

Type of Hunt Hunting Dates Hunt No. Comments (open area, legal weapons, legal game, # of Permit-tags) & Requirements
Fall Archery - Only Black Bear Aug 24 - Oct 04, 2018 None Non-permit tag required. Any bear except sow with cubs. Fort Huachuca female harvest is one. Post permit is required. 

BEAR SPECIAL REGULATIONS: As prescribed in AGFD Hunting Regulations when the number of female bears equaling the female harvest limit for a particular hunt has been reported killed, the unit(s) will be closed at sundown the Wednesday immediately following. Hunters are responsible for calling 1-800-970-BEAR (2327) before hunting to determine if their desired hunt unit is still open. The female harvest limit is combined for Unit 35A/35B and Fort Huachuca hunts, and both hunts will close when the female harvest limit is reached for Unit 35A/35B.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN: Any bear hunt on Fort Huachuca will close if the female harvest limit for Fort Huachuca is reached (FH female harvest limit is one) or if the female harvest limit is reached in Unit 35A/35B. You MUST call the bear closure hotline to determine if the hunt is still open.

As prescribed in R12-4-308, all hunters must contact an Arizona Game and Fish Department office in person or by telephone at 1-800-970-BEAR (2327) within 48 hours of taking a bear. The report shall include the hunter's name, hunting license number, tag number, sex of the bear taken, management unit where the bear was taken, and telephone number at which the hunter can be reached to obtain additional information. Within 10 days of taking a bear, the hunter (or their designee) shall present the bear's skull and hide with attached proof of sex to a designated Arizona Game and Fish Department employee for inspection (pursuant to R12-4-308). If the skull is frozen, it should be defrosted prior to presenting for inspection as a premolar tooth will be removed from the bear. If the hide is frozen, ensure that the attached proof of sex is accessible and identifiable. Successful hunters are encouraged to contact the nearest Department office by telephone to coordinate inspections.

ATTENTION: A designated Fort Huachuca Environmental and Natural Resources (ENRD) employee can do the inspection and tooth removal. Contact 520-678-8112 to coordinate inspection. If an ENRD employee is unavailable please contact the nearest AGFD office to coordinate the inspection.
