So you want to know what Arizona and Waterfowl are doing in the same sentence? Believe it or not Arizona has a variety of wetland habitats, which occur, throughout the state and subsequently ducks and geese locate them offering excellent hunting throughout the fall and winter months. This site will hopefully get you started in the right direction to Arizona Waterfowling.

Waterfowl hunter Arizona falls within the Pacific Flyway, along with 11 other western states. Waterfowl species occurring in the state include both resident and migratory populations. Waterfowl migrating into or through Arizona generally come from the Northern Rocky Mountain states as well as Alberta and Saskatchewan. All common species of both diving and puddle ducks as well as dark and white geese can be found in Arizona. Arizona's waterfowl hunting season usually opens on the first Friday in October and runs into January. Hunting seasons and bag limits are set by the Pacific Flyway frameworks and adopted annually by the Game and Fish Commission in late July or earl August.

Before you go on your hunt, be sure to check your equipment and know how to properly care for your game.
