Arizona hunters still have an opportunity to receive a hunt permit-tag for select 2019 elk hunts.
There are 744 leftover hunt permit-tags — 668 for the minimal occurrence zone/low density (general) hunt in game management units 12A, 12B, 13A and 13B. All remaining hunt permit-tags will be available for purchase on a first-come, first-served basis as follows:
- By mail: Paper applications will be accepted beginning at 8 a.m. Monday, March 18, and must be addressed to: Arizona Game and Fish Department, Attn.: Draw/First Come, 5000 W. Carefree Highway, Phoenix, AZ Note: There is no “mini” draw. Allow 10 to 15 business days to receive a hunt permit-tag by mail.
- In person: If any leftover hunt permit-tags remain, they will be available for purchase beginning at 8 a.m. Monday, March 25, at any of the department’s regional offices statewide.
If you put in for an elk tag but have not yet checked to see if you were drawn, go here to do so.
