The Arizona Game and Fish Department advises that some hunters who were drawn for deer in Game Management Units 12 or 13 for this fall, or who purchased a leftover tag for deer, turkey or javelina by application over-the-counter at a department office, may have been mistakenly mailed a duplicate tag due to a clerical error.
If you received a duplicate tag, the department advises you to destroy the duplicate. The legal bag limit for these species is one animal per calendar year. If you exceed that harvest (except as prescribed by R12-4-120), you could face consequences that include possible fines or loss of hunting privileges.
The department is attempting to notify by letter or telephone those individuals who may have been mailed a duplicate tag.
