AZ: Applications Now Being Accepted for Spring Hunts

AZ: Applications Now Being Accepted for Spring Hunts
Outdoor Channel
The 2012 Spring Turkey, Javelina, Buffalo and Bear Hunt Draw Information booklet and regulations are now available at the Arizona Game and Fish Department’s website, and applications for applying are available at www.azgfd.gov/draw.

Many of the spring hunts have a limited number of tags and are issued through a draw/lottery process. The deadline to apply is Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2011 by 7 p.m. (MST). Postmarks do not count.

At this time, applications can be mailed to the Arizona Game and Fish Department or hand-delivered to any of the seven Game and Fish offices located in Pinetop, Flagstaff, Kingman, Yuma, Tucson, Mesa and Phoenix.

Mailed applications should be addressed to the Arizona Game and Fish Department, Attn.: Drawing Section, PO Box 74020, Phoenix, AZ 85087-1052.

Game and Fish continues to test its new online application system, and officials anticipate that it may become available during the spring drawing cycle. However, there is no set date at this time. To be notified when the system is available, you can sign up for email alerts, “like” our Facebook page, or follow us on Twitter.


Applicants are encouraged to apply early to take advantage of the “correction period.” If your application is received by the department by Sept. 23 and has a mistake on it, Game and Fish will try to contact you (three attempts by phone in a 24-hour period) and give you an opportunity to correct the mistake. After that date, mistakes can cause your application to be rejected.


Applicants are reminded a 2012 license is required to enter the spring draw. Licenses may be purchased through the draw/application process. For those that wish to purchase a license outside of the application process, 2012 licenses are anticipated to be available at Game and Fish offices and website service by Aug. 20 and at license dealers the first week of September.

“For those kids that are considering hunting, or are new to big game hunting, we are offering juniors-only hunting camps and outdoor skills workshops (see page 26 of the spring regs). These events are a perfect place to start learning about the excitement and traditions of hunting,” McMullen added.

Printed copies of the regulations are anticipated to be at license dealers and Game and Fish offices statewide by early September.

For more information about hunting and drawing information, including leftover tags remaining for fall deer, juniors-only javelina and fall turkey, visit www.azgfd.gov/draw.
