​​​​​​​​​Regional Hunt Guides

Regional hunt guides are produced annually by the Northwest and Southwest Regions. They contain valuable information for planning a big game hunt. Updated guides typically arrive around July 1. These booklets provide harvest statistics, herd estimates, directories and some great hunting​ tips. Hunters will also find useful information on terrain and weather for the units.
