Youth under the age of 10 and blind residents do not need to purchase a state fishing license to fish in Arizona.
This strategic plan reflects the references of Arizona's citizens as they relate to management of Arizona's wildlife-oriented recreation. It also reflects the biological principles involved in managing Arizona's wildlife.
Wildlife 20/20 provides broad strategic guidance for all department programs. It is intended to be a living document that conveys policy direction that the Arizona Game and Fish Commission has provided to the department to guide its work into the future. It will be complemented by additional plans designed to provide more specific direction, as needed.

Key actions and decisions affecting management of Arizona’s wildlife and outdoor recreational opportunities don’t occur just within our state. Forces are also at play from outside the state – at regional, national and international levels. These reports discuss some of the issues and provides a broad overview of representative accomplishments and activities for the year.
The southwestern United States and Sonora, Mexico are the extreme northern limits of the jaguar’s (Panthera onca) range, which primarily extends from central Mexico south through Central and South America to northern Argentina. Recently, the jaguar ranged as far north as Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. Over the last century, the jaguar’s range has been reduced to approximately 46% of its historic range due to hunting pressure and habitat loss. The greatest loss of occupied range has occurred in the southern United States, northern Mexico, northern Brazil, and southern Argentina. Since 1900, jaguars have been documented occasionally in the southwestern United States, but the number of sightings per decade has declined over the last 100 years with only 4 verified sightings between 1970 and 2000. The objectives of our analysis were twofold: (1) characterize potential jaguar habitat in Arizona from historic sighting records, and (2) create a statewide habitat suitability map.
Effective integration of prescriptions employing aggregated retention of forest structure important to squirrels and other wildlife, reconstruction-based restoration prescriptions, and meso-reserves has the potential to optimize attainment of ponderosa pine forest ecosystem restoration and wildlife population goals.
