From the Arizona Game and Fish Department
-- Arizona's 2012 Pronghorn Antelope and Elk Hunt Draw Information regulations booklet has now been posted online at www.azgfd.gov/draw.
Hunters can apply for a hunt permit-tag issued through the drawing process.
Paper applications can be submitted now either by U.S. mail to Arizona Game and Fish Department, P.O. Box 74020, Phoenix, AZ 85087-1052, or hand delivered to any Game and Fish office. The online application service for the draw is expected to be available by early to mid January.
The deadline to apply is Feb. 14 by 7 p.m. (MST). Postmarks do not count for mailed applications.
A 2012 hunting license is required to apply in the draw, and hunters are reminded that licenses purchased through the draw will not be mailed out until after the drawing process is completed.
Licenses can also be purchased online at the Game and Fish website, at any Game and Fish office or at more than 300 license dealers statewide. Hunters who make an online purchase must have a working printer because the online system is self-fulfilling and requires printing the license at time of purchase.
To take advantage of the correction period, apply early. If the application has an error and is received before 5 p.m. Jan. 20, hunters will receive up to three phone calls from Game and Fish in a 24-hour period to help get the application corrected. After that date, mistakes can cause an application to be rejected.
The printed Pronghorn Antelope and Elk Hunt Draw Information booklets are anticipated to be available at department offices and at license dealers statewide around mid January 2012.
