The spectacular Mogollon Rim; part of the uniqueness of Arizona Hunt Unit 5A Map; GMU 5A

Arizona Hunt Unit 5A Map is one of Arizona’s most spectacular game management regions offering a variety of habitats and unmatched scenery.  Its southern region lies in the heart of Arizona’s famed Mogollon Rim providing explorers some of the most scenic breathtaking views surrounded by ponderosa timbered mountains and numerous canyons; in the higher elevations spruce, fir and aspen.  It also contains the rim’s highest peak, Baker’s Butte at an elevation of 8077 feet with a lookout tower granting spectacular hundred mile views.  Its central region roams through the cedar juniper belt eventually arriving at its lower elevations of the high grasslands in the northern part of the boundary.

AZ Hunt Unit 5A offers trophy big game hunting for elk, mule deer, antelope, black bear, mountain lion and turkey.  Great opportunities for small game such as bobcat, coyote, fox, cottontail rabbit, squirrel and more are also awarded in this unit.

Additionally, because of the numerous lakes, water tanks, rivers and streams, it provides excellent waterfowl and fishing potential. Waterfowl species include Canadian geese, mallards, mergansers, blue winged teal, northern pintail and more.  

Gamefish species in the high elevations lakes and streams include Rainbow and Brown Trout.  The two most popular lakes are Blue Ridge Reservoir and Knoll Lake that offer camping, boating, hiking, and fishing for trophy-sized trout.

AZ Hunting Unit 5A lies partly within the Coconino National Forest inside the southern half as well as BLM, State, and private land in its northern region.  Due to the primitive nature of the roads combined with weather conditions, access demands 4x4 off road vehicles in order to safely venture throughout the unit.  Please be mindful that there are numerous reasons why some road restrictions exist within National Forests.  Please be mindful and respect the protection given to the land and resources by these closures and restrictions.
 

The Grand Canyon State has been divided into Hunt Units otherwise known as Game Management Units (GMU). Each of these units can contain state, federal, military and private land, and the boundaries serve in assisting the Arizona Game and Fish Department and the Arizona Game and Fish Commission in managing wildlife within its boundaries. And although these references seem specific to wildlife and hunting, each unit's boundaries can be helpful to any outdoor enthusiast whether you are hiking, biking, off-roading, boating or camping.
