Kingman, AZ -(Ammoland.com)- The deadline for Arizona's 2014 fall draw for hunting deer, turkey, javelina, bighorn sheep, buffalo and pheasant is approaching fast, so don't delay in submitting your application.
Draw applications must be received by the Arizona Game and Fish Department by 7 p.m. (MST), Tuesday, June 10, 2014. Arizona Game and Fish must actually receive draw applications by the time and date of the deadline. Postmarks don't count.
There are three ways to apply for the fall draw: online, in person or by mail.
ONLINE: Visit online and scroll down to the “Apply for a Draw” link. Don't wait until the last minute to log on. The high volume of last-minute draw applications can cause the website to slow down or become temporarily unavailable. Technical problems can also occur that may prevent hunters from uploading and completing online applications by the deadline. It is the responsibility of each applicant to get their applications in by the deadline; 7 p.m. (MST), Tuesday, June 10. Don't delay. Log on and apply well before the deadline.
IN PERSON: Drop off applications at any of the seven Game and Fish offices statewide. Offices are located in Pinetop, Flagstaff, Kingman, Yuma, Tucson, Mesa and Phoenix. Visit online for office addresses and directions.
BY MAIL: Draw applications may be mailed, but the applications must be received by Game and Fish before the deadline at 7 p.m., Tuesday, June 10. Postmarks don't matter — it's the date and time applications are received by Game and Fish. Mailed applications must be sent to Arizona Game and Fish Department, Attn. Drawing Section, PO Box 74020, Phoenix, AZ 85087-1052.
IMPORTANT DEADLINE INFORMATION: Department office locations statewide will be open until 7 p.m. on June 10 to receive dropped-off applications. However, front counter customer service for regular business transactions, including the sale of fishing and hunting licenses, will close at the regular time, 5 p.m.
To participate in the draw, applicants must have a hunting license or combination hunting/fishing license that is valid as of the draw application deadline. If you don't already have your license, you can buy it through the draw application process at the time you are applying for the draw, or you can buy it separately (in advance of submitting your draw application) at license dealers, at Game and Fish offices, or online.
Double-check all payment information to be sure it is current. If payment is rejected at the time of the draw, the application may be rejected.
