Deer Forecast 2002
Arizona issued a record-low 42,000 deer tags statewide, reflecting poor production of both mule deer and Coues whitetails. Bright spots include the renowned Kaibab Plateau, namely Unit 13B (archery permits are over-the-counter). In the southwest, look to Units 36B and 36C for Coues deer.
