Can I hunt coyotes and predators with an SBR in Arizona? Links to the law? I'm having a tough time finding anything. This is for an out of state hunter. Thanks

Yes, at least the game wardens that have checked me haven't had an issue with it and its a 12.5" AR.

I did ask the local Game and Fish Field Supervisor and he said it was legal.

An SBR is legal for taking predators and furbearers in AZ. There are a few areas where an SBR may not be allowed such as in metro Game Management Units. A hunting license is required to take coyotes in AZ .

Here is the info for the statutes and rules that apply to hunting with a SBR.


The definition of a "firearm" is in ARS 13-3101A4
"Firearm" means any loaded or unloaded handgun, pistol, revolver, rifle, shotgun or other weapon that will expel, is designed to expel or may readily be converted to expel a projectile by the action of an explosive. Firearm does not include a firearm in permanently inoperable condition.


Commission Rule R12-4-304D
An individual may take predatory and furbearing animals
by using the following methods, when authorized by
Commission Order and subject to the restrictions under
R12-4-303 and R12-4-318:
1. Firearms;
2. Pre-charged pneumatic weapons .22 caliber or larger;
3. Bow and arrow;
4. Crossbow;
5. Traps not prohibited under R12-4-307;
6. Artificial light while taking raccoon provided the light
is not attached to or operated from a motor vehicle,
motorized watercraft, watercraft under sail, or floating
object towed by a motorized watercraft or a watercraft
under sail;
7. Artificial light while taking coyote during seasons with
day-long hours, provided the light is not attached to
or operated from a motor vehicle, motorized watercraft,
watercraft under sail, or floating object towed by
a motorized watercraft or a watercraft under sail; and
8. Dogs.



Areas open to hunting Predator and Furbearers are found in the 2016-2017 Hunting Regulation Booklet under Commission Order 13 on page 82.
An SBR would not be allowed in the areas designated as a "Limited Weapon Shotgun Shooting Shot Season.



Commission Rule R12-4-303 Unlawful Devices, Methods, and Ammunition
A. In addition to the prohibitions prescribed under A.R.S. §§
17-301 and 17-309, the following devices, methods, and
ammunition are unlawful for taking any wildlife in this
state:
1. An individual shall not use any of the following to take
wildlife:
a. Fully automatic firearms, including firearms capable
of selective automatic fire; or
b. Tracer, armor-piercing, or full-jacketed ammunition
designed for military use.

Introducing a new person to hunting and watching them be successful is more rewarding than being successful yourself.

Make time to create a conservationist.

Thanks Fursniper, that really helped. I have enough problems getting thru my own states rules much less another.
