However, it isthe hunter’s responsibility to understand the new rules, particularlythe notes section or each hunting season and species or the ociallegal requirements.Hunters are asked to report violations to the Operation Game Thiehotline at (800) 352-0700, or the local law enorcement agency im-mediately.For more inormation, a map o the Phoenix no-hunting area, andthe latest regulations, visit

NO HUNTING AREAS:
Closed to hunting
– A large portion o the Phoenix metropolitanarea is closed to all hunting. This area closure pertains to hunts inmetro units 25M, 26M and 47M. This closure is to ensure hunting onlyoccurs in open, undeveloped, uninhabited public and state trust landswhere it is sae to do so.County islands that are large enough to comply with the quartermile rule are excluded rom this closure. However, hunting in these ar-eas is restricted to “limited weapon - shotgun shooting shot” seasonsor public saety (no single projectile rearms—i.e.: rifes, pistols,muzzleloaders).
