Hunt Regulations Now Available

Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

Printed copies of the 2006-2007 Arizona Hunting and Trapping Regulations and application forms are now available at all seven Arizona Game and Fish Department offices and at license dealers statewide. Regulations can also be downloaded from the department’s Web site at azgfd.gov.

Hunters have the option of applying online for the fall 2006 big game draw. This option provides several advantages. The online program prompts you to accurately complete your form, dramatically reducing your chance of a rejected application due to errors. You can also meet deadlines without worrying about mail delivery time or transit time involved in dropping off a paper application at a department office.

All applications must be received by the department by 7 p.m. (MST), Tuesday, June 13. People submitting paper forms must allow enough time to ensure the applications are in the department’s possession by the deadline; postmarks don’t count.

Those submitting paper applications should also note the correction period deadline is 5 p.m. (MST) on May 31. If a paper application is received by the department by that date and contains an error, the department will make three attempts within a 24-hour period to notify the applicant by telephone (if a phone number is provided). Hunters are encouraged to apply early to take advantage of the correction period and to avoid potential lines at Game and Fish offices closer to deadline day.

One other important note: Some unit number changes and boundary changes are going into effect. Be sure to carefully look through the hunt regulations booklet and confirm that you are applying for the correct area where you want to hunt.
