Elk and antelope hunting permit applications are due by Feb. 10.
The final deadline to submit paper applications for a 2009 hunt permit-tag for antelope and elk hunts through the draw process is Tuesday, Feb. 10 by 7 p.m. (MST). Applications must be received by mail or by hand delivery to department offices before the deadline; postmarks don’t count.
Department officials also noted that the printed elk-antelope regulation supplement has been distributed to all license dealers, and the information is also available online at azgfd.gov. Hunters are reminded there is no online application process.
Don’t forget — a 2009 hunting license is required to apply. Department officials encourage hunters to get their license before applying for an elk or antelope hunt permit-tag if they wish to do any other hunting in early 2009.
Licenses purchased through the draw process will not be mailed out until April 24 regardless of application success.
To assist customers and reduce errors, a PDF application form can be filled out using a computer and keyboard, but must be printed, signed and submitted by mail (along with the correct fees by check or money order), or by delivery to any department office.
The form can also be printed and then filled out using an ink pen.
