Arizona Elk and Antelope Application Deadline

Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

Elk and antelope hunters: Don't let an unintentional error on your hunt application cause it to be rejected.

If the Arizona Game and Fish Department receives your application by Jan. 25, the department will make three attempts within a 24-hour period to notify you by telephone (if a phone number is provided). This allows for an application to be corrected, rather than being rejected from the draw process.

Sportsmen and women are reminded that the final deadline to submit paper applications for this year's antelope and elk hunts is 7 p.m. (MST) on Feb. 12. Applications must be received by mail or by hand delivery to department offices by that time; postmarks don't count. There is no online application process.

The 2008 Arizona Pronghorn Antelope and Elk Hunt Draw Information booklet is available at Game and Fish offices and online at License dealers should have copies in the next 7-10 days.

Hunters are also advised that some 2008 spring javelina tags are still available on a first-come, first-served basis. To find out what hunt units have tags left, visit the department's Web site at

Wildlife conservation and management of game animals by the Arizona Game and Fish Department is made possible by funding generated from the sale of hunting licenses, hunt permit-tags, and matching funds from federal excise taxes hunters pay on guns, ammunition and related equipment.
