Applying online is fast and easy. Go to https://az.gov/azgfd/draw/home.xhtml and scroll down to the “Apply for a Draw” button. The system prompts users to complete forms accurately, dramatically reducing errors that might result in applications being rejected. Only VISA and MasterCard are accepted for online draw applications. No charges for the cost of hunt permit-tags will be posted to applicants’ credit cards unless and until they are drawn.
The online draw application service works with these browsers: Microsoft Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari. Safari users may want to upgrade to the latest version of the OS and Safari browser because problems have been reported with older Safari versions. This application service does not work with mobile devices such as iPad, iPhone or other Smartphones at this time.
Before beginning an online application, have the names, addresses and dates of birth of every member of the hunting party ready to go. Before clicking “submit,” take a moment to review the regulations and double check the hunt information dates and details for the hunts you want to put in for.
Paper applications may be hand-delivered to any of the seven Arizona Game and Fish Department offices in Phoenix, Mesa, Tucson, Pinetop, Flagstaff, Kingman and Yuma, and must be submitted with a check or money order for application fees and tags. Credit cards are not accepted when paper applications are used. Hand-delivered applications that are dropped at department office locations will be accepted until the 7 p.m. deadline, but front counters for customer service at all offices statewide close at 5 p.m. Remember, postmarks do not count – applications must be RECEIVED by Game and Fish no later than the 7 p.m. deadline on Tuesday, Feb. 11. If in doubt, use the online application service or hand-deliver applications to be sure they are received by the deadline.
Whether applying online, by mail or in person, a non-refundable application fee of $13 for Arizona residents and $15 for non-residents is due when the application is submitted. A portion of these fees are dedicated to habitat, public access and recruitment/retention efforts.
A 2014 hunting license is required in order to apply for the draw and may be purchased through the draw application process online, by mail and in person. If buying a license online be sure to have a working printer ready to go, because the department does not mail licenses purchased online. Licenses are also available at Game and Fish offices and at hunting/fishing license dealers throughout the state.
