AZ Moves To Ban Use Of Trail Cameras For Hunting Advantage

Arizona is moving to ban the use of trail cameras to take video or photos to aid hunting.

Regulators say the widespread practice runs counter to a doctrine that prey animals should have a chance to get away and that hunters should rely on their skills, not technology. The Arizona Game and Fish Commission unanimously approved the ban during a June 11 meeting in Payson and made tentative plans to implement it next January. Commission Chairman Kurt Davis told the Arizona Republic achieving the Jan. 1 target date depends on education and training.
