If in doubt, read the regs and talk directly with the Dept. of the state in which you plan to hunt.
I believe you did confirm it last year. It changed this year.

Re: Suppress or not to Suppress

I did some more checking. You are partially correct right now....and will be completely correct come Sept. 1st. Although the law was passed and signed by the govenor, it does not go into effect until Sept. 1st. (Some sources at AZGFD thought it might be Aug. 1st). Either way, it will be legal come this Fall. Thanks for making us all aware of this change.
