A quote I made in my review of Arizona's 2010 hunt recommendations needs to be amended. The quote is below"
"A lot more hunts lost tags this year than gained them. Nothing too notable except maybe Unit 19B losing 40 of it's 60 tags. Finally G&F made a good call, but not without causing a lot headaches for a lot of hunters. This should have been done a few years ago, but I guess it's better late than never."
Apparently, after reviewing the actual 2010 regulations, G&F decided to revert the tag quota in 19B back to it's original status - 60 permits. This is a reaction to what seems to be the unlocking of a few gates within the unit on a ranch that was previously forbidden to public hunters. I've heard grumblings on both sides of the fence, but I personally don't have any knowledge of what has been going on barring what I've read on the internet forums and a few friends word of mouth.
I'll look into this situation some more and find out all the details for those thinking of applying in Yavapai County's Unit 19B. Hopefully enough of the unit has been opened to the public to justify 60 tags.
