If you haven’t had a chance to see if you were drawn for the spring 2009 hunts, draw results are available by visiting the Game and Fish Department’s Web site: azgfd.gov/draw.
Applicants can obtain draw results for spring turkey, javelina, buffalo and bear hunt tags by providing a department ID number (usually the applicant’s Social Security number) and date of birth. Draw results are also available by telephone at (602) 942-3000 (press 2).
Game and Fish officials said that hunt permit-tags will be mailed out to successful applicants no later than Dec. 5. Unsuccessful or rejected applicants will have their refund mailed out by Nov. 28.
For those individuals who were unsuccessful in the 2009 spring draw or did not submit an application, don’t despair — there are remaining tags for spring javelina, turkey and bear. Applications for more than 9,000 javelina tags, more than 250 turkey tags, and just over 70 tags for spring bear hunts will be accepted by mail only on or after 8 a.m. (MST), Dec. 1, 2008. For a detailed listing of permits, visit azgfd.gov/draw or call (623) 236-7702.
