Arizona -(Ammoland.com)-Hunters can apply now with a paper application; online application service expected to be available by mid-January.
The 2015 Pronghorn Antelope and Elk Hunt Draw Information booklet has been posted online by the Arizona Game and Fish Department at www.azgfd.gov/draw. Printed copies of the booklet should be available at hunting license dealers in the next few days.
Hunters may now begin applying for hunt permit-tags issued through the drawing process by submitting a paper application by mail to Arizona Game and Fish Department, P.O. Box 74020, Phoenix, AZ 85087-1052, or by hand delivery to any Game and Fish office until the deadline. The online application service is anticipated to be available by mid-January.
The deadline for applying for pronghorn antelope and elk hunts is Tuesday, Feb. 10, 2015 by 7 p.m. (MST). Applications must be received by the department by the deadline; postmarks don’t count.
A valid Arizona hunting license or combination hunting/fishing license is required to apply for the draw. Because all licenses (other than the short-term license) are valid for 365 days, please check the dates on your license to make sure your license is valid as of the deadline day for the draw. Also remember that you’ll need to have a valid license when you are in the field for your hunt. Licenses can be purchased online, at Arizona Game and Fish Department offices, or at more than 300 authorized license dealers around the state. They can also be purchased through the draw process when you are applying for the draw.
