From Arizona Game and Fish Department
-- Hunters who apply for Arizona's 2012 elk and pronghorn antelope hunts are encouraged to apply early to take advantage of the correction period.
If the application has an error and is received before 5 p.m. Jan. 20, the applicant 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 the application to be rejected.
The application deadline for elk and pronghorn hunts is Feb. 14 by 7 p.m. MST.
The online application service is now available online at www.azgfd.gov/draw.
Paper applications can still be mailed to the Arizona Game and Fish Department, Attn: Drawing Section, PO Box 74020, Phoenix, AZ 85087-1052, or they can be hand-delivered to Game and Fish offices in Pinetop, Flagstaff, Kingman, Yuma, Tucson, Mesa and Phoenix. Mailed applications must be received by the department by the deadline; postmarks do not count.
A 2012 hunting license is required to apply in the draw. Hunters who haven't already purchased a license can do so through the draw application process. The department does not mail out licenses that are purchased online. Hunters purchasing a license online must have a working printer handy and print the license out at the time of purchase.
Licenses can also be purchased at Game and Fish offices and at hunting/fishing license dealers throughout the state.
Copies of the 2012 Pronghorn Antelope and Elk Hunt Draw Information Booklet are available at Game and Fish offices and at hunting license dealers throughout the state. The booklet is also available online at www.azgfd.gov/draw.
