The Yuma Police Department and the Arizona Game and Fish Department have a long standing partnership and would like to remind hunters about the following:

Individuals are prohibited from hunting within all municipal and county parks and preserves, including the Yuma East Wetlands and West Wetlands Park. Hunting on golf courses, airports, and posted water treatment facilities is also prohibited.

It is unlawful to discharge a firearm while taking wildlife within 1/4 mile of an occupied farmhouse or other residence, cabin, lodge, or building without permission of the owner or resident.

No person may knowingly discharge any firearm or shoot any device upon, from, across, or into a maintained road or railway. A person may not trespass on private property for taking wildlife if that property is posted "No Hunting," "No Trespassing," or if a person is asked to leave by the owner.

If you have any questions or need additional information please contact the regional Arizona Game and Fish office in Yuma at 9140 E. 28th Street, call 928-342-0091.
