Kingman, AZ -( Hunters applying online for the Spring 2015 Elk and Antelope seasons may encounter an issue when attempting to input their hunting license information, but the Arizona Game and Fish Department says there’s no need to worry, and that applicants may go ahead and finalize their applications.

While applicants must have a valid license on February 10, 2015 to qualify for tags and to hunt, the online system is populating some forms with the number of the last license purchased prior to the opening of the 2015 elk/antelope draw. The last license information is making applicants worry, but according to John Bullington, assistant Director of Special Services at Arizona Game and Fish, there is no reason to panic.

“If you purchased a new license since the draw opened, your application form may auto-populate with your old license number, but it will be okay,” said Bullington. “When your new or renewed license number is sent over to the draw database, it will be attached to your records and to your application, and your application will be accepted.”

Arizona Game and Fish apologizes for this confusion and is working to accommodate those who need extra help with the application process. Extra phone operators will be on duty (for application assistance only) from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday, February 9 and 10, at 623-236-7424.

Remember, applications must be received by the department by the deadline (7 p.m. MST on Tuesday, February 10).
