For immediate release, Jan. 29, 2009
Deadline to apply for elk or antelope hunting permits is Feb. 10
All applications are due by mail or hand delivery; there is no online application process
PHOENIX — Hunters applying for a hunt permit-tag for elk or pronghorn antelope this year need
to have their applications submitted to the Arizona Game and Fish Department no later than Tuesday,
Feb. 10 by 7 p.m. (MST); postmarks do not count. Hunters are reminded there is no online application process.
The 2009 Arizona Pronghorn Antelope and Elk Hunt Draw Information regulations booklet
and hunt permit-tag application forms are all available at all license dealers, department
offices, or can be downloaded from www.azgfd.gov/draw.
To assist customers and reduce errors, a PDF application form can be filled out
using a computer and keyboard, but must be printed, signed and submitted (along with
the correct fees by check or money order) by mail, or by delivery to any department office.
The form can also be printed and filled out using an ink pen.
A 2009 hunting license is required to apply. Department officials encourage hunters
to get their license before applying for an elk or antelope hunt permit-tag if they
wish to do any other hunting in early 2009. Licenses purchased through the draw process
will not be mailed out until April 24, 2009, regardless of application success.
Media note: The big game draw is a lottery-style process for allocating the limited
number of Arizona big game hunting permits to applicants. The department typically
receives far more applications than there are available permits for the elk and
antelope draw. Wildlife conservation and management of game animals by the Arizona
Game and Fish Department is made possible by funding generated from the sale of
hunting licenses, hunt permit-tags, and matching funds from federal excise taxes
hunters pay on guns, ammunition and related equipment.
