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, February 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.
