Arizona Auction Tag Dates?

Arizona has moved opening day for the Arizona Antelope Auction Tags from August 1st to August 15th. I have no idea why they moved the dates. It's a raw deal for the potential bidders.
The Negatives:

1: Now the auction tag winners will actually not be the first antelope hunters in the field since the 19A archery season opens on August 8th! Considering ALL 3 auction tag bucks last year were taken in 19A this is something I wouldn't tolerate if I was a potential bidder.

2: The potential for horn breakage increases for every day an antelope has it's horns. The closer to the rut it gets the greater the chance for breakage.

Since I have one of those 19A archery lope tags, this could very well be the best news ever!! :-)

Hahaha!!! You bet! The archery hunters should be jumping for joy!

Unfortunately, you still have to hunt with a stick and an over sized slingshot...
