AZGFD Accepting Online Applications for 2017 Fall Hunts

11 May 2017   Arizona Game and Fish Department
Deadline Is 11:59 p.m. (Arizona Time) Tuesday, June 13

The Arizona Game and Fish Department is accepting online applications for 2017 hunt permit-tags issued through the draw process for deer, fall turkey, fall javelina, bighorn sheep, fall bison and pheasant.

To apply online, visit and scroll down to “Apply for a Draw.” The deadline by which the department must receive all applications – online or paper -- is 11:59 p.m. (Arizona time) Tuesday, June 13. Postmarks do not count. Paper applications can be mailed to: Arizona Game and Fish Department, Attn.: Drawing Section, P.O. Box 74020, Phoenix, AZ  85087-1052, or dropped off at department offices statewide.

AZGFD is encouraging applicants to consider adding “PointGuard” when applying online for a hunt permit-tag. PointGuard ensures if a successful applicant is unable to participate in a hunt for any reason, the accumulated bonus points that were expended to draw that hunt permit-tag will be reinstated.
All applicants must sign up for a free AZGFD customer portal account to purchase PointGuard (visit, click on the “My Account” button at the top of the home page, then select the “Create Account” option). PointGuard is $5 per species, per applicant, purchased at the time of completing the online application, or prior to the application period deadline.

As a reminder, applicants must possess a valid Arizona hunting license to apply for a hunt permit-tag. That license must be valid on the last day of the application period (June 13).  Licenses are available online and at department offices and license dealers statewide.
