Elk, Antelope Application Deadline Is Near

If you’re a deer hunter looking to chase an elk or antelope in Arizona, your permit application deadline is rapidly approaching.

Hunters who wish to apply for a 2013 elk or pronghorn antelope hunt permit-tag issued through the drawing process are reminded that applications must be received by the department by Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2013, by 7 p.m. (MST).

Applications can be submitted by using the online process (visit https://az.gov/app/huntdraw/home.xhtml), or paper applications can be mailed to the Arizona Game and Fish Department, Attn: Drawing Section, PO Box 74020, Phoenix, AZ 85087-1052, or hand-delivered to any of the seven Game and Fish offices located in Pinetop, Flagstaff, Kingman, Yuma, Tucson, Mesa and Phoenix.

A 2013 hunting license is required of all applicants 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.
