From Arizona Game and Fish Department
-- The online application service is now available for Arizona’s 2012 hunts for deer, fall turkey, fall javelina, bighorn sheep, fall buffalo and pheasant.
Hunters who haven’t yet submitted an application now have the option of applying online at https://phx.az.gov/app/huntdraw/home.xhtml.
The application deadline is June 12, and applicants are advised to apply early in the event technical issues arise on deadline day.
Applicants pay the non-refundable $7.50 application fee, which is charged as part of the tag fee whether applying online or with a paper application. Also, a 2012 hunting license is required of all applicants to apply in the draw. Hunters who haven’t already purchased a license, can do so through the draw application process.
Please remember online purchase of a license online requires you to have a working printer to print the license at the time of purchase. The department does not mail out licenses that are purchased online.
Licenses are also available for purchase at Arizona Game and Fish offices and from more than 300 hunting license dealers statewide.
The online application service allows payment with VISA and MasterCard credit cards. The cost of the hunt permit-tag won’t be charged until a hunter’s name is drawn.
The online service works with the following browsers: Microsoft Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari. Safari users should upgrade to the latest version of the OS and Safari browser. The application service currently does not work with mobile devices such as iPad, iPhone or other Smartphones.
Paper applications can 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 any of the seven Game and Fish offices located in Pinetop, Flagstaff, Kingman, Yuma, Tucson, Mesa and Phoenix. Mailed applications must be received by the department by the deadline; postmarks do not count.
Copies of the 2012-13 Arizona Hunting and Trapping Regulations are now available at all Game and Fish offices, at hunting license dealers throughout the state, and online at www.azgfd.gov/draw.
The drawing process for elk and pronghorn antelope hunts occurred earlier this year.
