Apply for Arizona Elk and Pronghorn Hunts by Jan. 20 to Take Advantage of Correction Period



Hunters who apply for Arizona’s 2012 elk and pronghorn antelope hunts are encouraged to apply early to take advantage of the correction period.

If your application has an error and is received before 5 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 20, you will receive up to three phone calls from Game and Fish in a 24-hour period to help get the application corrected. After that date, mistakes can cause your application to be rejected.

The application deadline for elk and pronghorn hunts is Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2012 by 7 p.m. (MST).

The online application service is now available. Visit and click on the online application service link.

For those not using the online process, paper applications can still be mailed to the Arizona Game and Fish Department, Attn: Drawing Section, PO Box 74020, Phoenix, AZ 85087-1052, or they can be hand-delivered to any of the seven Game and Fish offices located in Pinetop, Flagstaff, Kingman, Yuma, Tucson, Mesa and Phoenix. Mailed applications must be received by the department by the deadline; postmarks don’t count.

Remember, a 2012 hunting license is required to apply in the draw. If you haven’t already purchased your license, you can do so through the draw application process. Please keep in mind that if you are purchasing your license online, you must have a working printer handy and print your license out at the time of purchase. The department does not mail out licenses that are purchased online. Licenses can also be purchased at Game and Fish offices and at hunting/fishing license dealers throughout the state.

Copies of the 2012 Pronghorn Antelope and Elk Hunt Draw Information Booklet are available at Game and Fish offices and at hunting license dealers throughout the state. The booklet is also available online at
