AZ: Reminder: Deadline to apply for elk, pronghorn hunts is Feb. 14
If you haven’t yet submitted your application for the draw for
Arizona’s 2012 elk and pronghorn antelope hunts, the deadline is
almost here. Applications must be received by the department by
Tuesday, Feb. 14, 7 p.m. (MST).
Applications can be submitted through the online service at
https://az.gov/app/huntdraw/home.xhtml (scroll down to the “Apply
for a Draw” button), or paper applications can be hand delivered to
any of the seven Arizona Game and Fish Department offices in
Phoenix, Mesa, Tucson, Pinetop, Flagstaff, Kingman and Yuma. A list
of office addresses is at www.azgfd.gov/offices.
Applications can also be submitted by U.S. mail, but if you haven’t
yet mailed your application, the department recommends you either
use the online service or hand deliver it to ensure it is received
by the deadline. Postmarks do not count.
Note: The department recommends that those using the online service
not wait until the last minute to apply, in case any technical
issues arise with the system.
Remember, a 2012 hunting license is required to apply in the draw.
If you haven’t already purchased your license, you can do so
through the draw application process. Please keep in mind that if
you are purchasing your license online, you must have a working
printer handy and print your license out at the time of purchase.
The department does not mail out licenses that are purchased
online. Licenses can also be purchased at Game and Fish offices and
at hunting/fishing license dealers throughout the state.
