From the Arizona Game and Fish Department
-- More than 5,500 hunting permits left over from the Arizona Game and Fish Department's fall drawing/lottery process became available Aug. 2 on a first-come, first-served basis by mailed application only.
For those individuals who missed the draw deadline for fall hunts or were unsuccessful in getting a permit-tag, there's a second chance to obtain one of the 4,300 deer tags, 900 fall turkey tags and, or 300 juniors-only fall javelina tags through the leftover process.
Visit www.azgfd.gov/draw for a detailed list of the leftover permits remaining and an application form. Applicants should refer to the 2010-11 Arizona Hunting and Trapping Regulations to determine the hunt dates, legal wildlife, and method of take, as well as for application instructions.
Leftover permit-tags remaining from the draw are issued in two stages and by two methods. The first stage applications are accepted by mail beginning Aug. 2. Applications received prior to this time will be returned.
After Aug. 9, hunters can obtain a leftover tag in person at any of the seven Arizona Game and Fish Department offices (in addition to the mailed application option). Walk-in customers need to fill out an application to obtain a leftover tag.
A list of Game and Fish regional office locations is available at www.azgfd.gov/offices.
