Forest officials offer assurances to Arizona hunters

Posted: Updated:
PRESCOTT, AZ (AP) -

Supervisors of two northern Arizona national forests are offering assurances to hunters and other campers.

Hunters had complained that federal officials appeared bent on a crackdown that mean hunters couldn't leave their trailers in forests while away during their work week.

The new message from supervisors of the Coconino and Kaibab national forests says forest visitors camping and actively engaging in hunting or other recreational activities are not at risk of being cited or having their property considered abandoned after 72 hours.

They also say hunters and other campers "have never been required to move camp every 72 hours and will not be required to do so in the future."

The supervisors say the 14-day limit remains in place.
