This same article was provided several days ago and I still think it is a great venue for the Arizona public.  While it is an open house and not an official hearing to allow the general public to voice concerns, it does allow the average hunter to attend and ask their questions to a knowledgable staff person and maybe accomplish some networking to further a person's hunting availability.  So a great venue overall.  I have done zero hunting in Arizona but would some day like to get a hunt planned.
