Arizona Deer and Sheep Applications Due June 9

June 5, 2009.

From the Arizona Game and Fish Department:

Time is running out for hunters wanting to apply for a fall hunt permit-tag for the 2009-10 hunting season. Applications for deer (including some archery-only), fall turkey, juniors-only javelina, bighorn sheep, buffalo, and pheasant are due to the Arizona Game and Fish Department on or before Tuesday, June 9 by 7 p.m. MST (postmarks do not count).

There is no online application process available – it is a manual paper-permit process only. Applications may be submitted by mail or hand delivered to any department office. For a list of office locations, visit

Both the 2009-10 Arizona Hunting and Trapping Regulations and the Hunt Permit-tag/License Application form are available at more than 300 license dealers throughout the state and have all the details needed to apply. Electronic copies of the regulations and application are also available at the department’s Web site at

To assist customers and reduce errors, a PDF application form can be filled out using a computer and keyboard, but must be printed, signed and submitted (along with the correct fees by check or money order) by mail, or by delivery to any department office. The form can also be printed and filled out using an ink pen.

Applicants should note, there is a new P.O. Box for submitting hunt permit applications by mail, and the address should be reflected on the new envelopes. The new address is Arizona Game and Fish Department, Attn.: Drawing Section, PO Box 74020, Phoenix, AZ 85087-1052. However, applications mailed to the old address will be automatically forwarded to the new address.

Pheasant hunters should note that the deadline to apply for a pheasant tag now coincides with the fall draw deadline of Tuesday, June 9 by 7 p.m. MST – postmarks do not count. Pheasant applicants are reminded there is a nonrefundable $7.50 application fee for successful and unsuccessful applicants.
