PHOENIX, AZ —-( The regulations for Arizona’s 2010 elk and pronghorn antelope seasons are available online at and hunters interested in obtaining a hunt permit-tag via the draw process can start applying now.

Applications must be submitted to the Arizona Game and Fish Department by U.S. mail to P.O. Box 74020, Phoenix, AZ 85087-1052 or hand-delivered to any department office by Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2010 by 7 p.m. (MST) – postmarks do not count.

Hunters are reminded a 2010 hunting license is required to apply. Department officials encourage hunters to get their license before applying for an elk or antelope hunt permit-tag if they wish to do any other hunting in early 2010. Licenses purchased through the draw process will not be mailed out until after the draw is completed.

Those who submit an application that is received by Jan. 21, 2010 (the end of the “correction period”) will receive up to three calls from the department in a 24-hour period if an error is found on the application. If the applicant is reached by phone, the department will try to help fix the error to prevent it from being rejected.

Arizona Game and Fish Department officials said printed copies of the regulations and application should be available at license dealers across the state in early January 2010.

For those hunters itching to get into the field before next fall, there is a variety of javelina permit-tags leftover from the spring drawing available at any of the seven department offices or by mail. In addition, javelina archery-only nonpermit-tags for metro Game Management Units are also available at any department office or license dealer. For a list of available spring javelina hunts, visit under “View List of Leftover 2010 Spring Hunts for Turkey, Javelina and Bear (PDF, 42kb).”
