A Second Chance at Arizona's Fall Big Game Hunts
PHOENIX - The more than 5,500 hunting permits left over from the Arizona Game and Fish Department's fall drawing/lottery process will be available on a first-come, first-served basis by mailed application only beginning Monday, August 2.
For those individuals who missed the draw deadline for fall hunts or were unsuccessful in getting a permit-tag, there is a second chance at more than 4,300 deer tags, 900 fall turkey tags, and 300 juniors-only fall javelina tags through the leftover process.
Visit www.azgfd.gov/draw for a detailed list of the leftover permits remaining and an application form. Applicants should refer to the 2010-11 Arizona Hunting and Trapping Regulations to determine the hunt dates, legal wildlife, method of take, and for application instructions.
Leftover permit-tags remaining from the draw are issued in two stages and by two methods.
In the first stage, applications will be accepted by mail only beginning at 8 a.m. (MST) on Monday, Aug. 2. Applications received prior to this time will be returned.
After Aug. 9 at 8 a.m. (MST), hunters can obtain a leftover tag in person at any of the seven Arizona Game and Fish Department offices (in addition to the mailed application option). Walk-in customers will still need to fill out an application to obtain a leftover tag. A list of Game and Fish regional office locations is available at www.azgfd.gov/offices.
For those who qualify, there are military hunts available for Fort Huachuca. Call for additional information.
