Arizona Game and Fish now accepting paper applications for 2014 fall hunts; online application service will be available in early to mid-May
The Arizona Game and Fish Department has posted the 2014-15 Arizona Hunting Regulations online at www.azgfd.gov/draw.
Hunters may now apply for a 2014 hunt permit-tag issued through the drawing process for deer, fall turkey, fall javelina, bighorn sheep, fall buffalo and pheasant. (The drawing process for elk and pronghorn antelope occurred earlier this year.)
At this point, paper applications may be submitted by U.S. mail to Arizona Game and Fish Department, Attn: Drawing Section, P.O. Box 74020, Phoenix, AZ 85087-1052, or hand-delivered to any Game and Fish office. The online application service for this draw is expected to be available in early to mid-May.
The deadline to apply is Tuesday, June 10, 2014 by 7 p.m. (MST). For those mailing a paper application, remember that applications must be RECEIVED by the department by the deadline. Postmarks do not count.
The printed 2014-15 Arizona Hunting Regulations booklets are anticipated to be available at department offices and at license dealers statewide in early May.
Please note that the trapping seasons, rules and regulations are no longer a part of the annual Arizona Hunting Regulations booklet. The department will produce a separate Trapping Regulations pamphlet that will be available in the summer of 2014.
