Poaching Affects Wildlife Conservation, Including the Draw

 

In Arizona, a lottery-style process called the Draw allocates the limited number of big game and other limited species hunt permit-tags to applicants. The department typically receives far more applications than there are available permits. Permits available per species are determined and adjusted annually from the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation principles that include science based studies, surveys, and management goals for maintaining healthy, sustainable wildlife populations and habitats.
