From the Arizona Game and Fish Department
-- Applications from hunters seeking to hunt Arizona's coveted elk or pronghorn antelope must be mailed or hand-delivered by Feb. 8 to have a chance at the limited permits drawing.
There is no online application process. The application receipt deadline is by 7 p.m. on Feb. 8, and postmarks do not count.
All applications must be submitted either by U.S. mail to Arizona Game and Fish Department Draw Department P.O. Box 74020, Phoenix, AZ 85087-1052, or hand-delivered to any Game and Fish office in Pinetop, Flagstaff, Kingman, Yuma, Tucson, Mesa or Phoenix.
Application forms and envelopes are available in the Arizona 2011 Pronghorn Antelope and Elk regulations, and detailed instructions for filling out the form appear on pages 8 to 12.
Demand far outweighs supply. Last year, more than 115,000 hunters applied for 27,633 total elk and antelope permits available. There are 24,263 elk permits and 874 antelope permits (25,137 combined total) available for 2011.
The big game draw page is available online at www.azgfd.gov/draw. Printed copies of the regulations and application are also available from any of the seven Game and Fish offices and more than 300 license dealers across the state.
