As a reminder, this will be the second-to-last draw in which paper applications will be accepted.  AZGFD is moving toward paperless hunt draws. Only online applications will be accepted beginning with the spring 2020 draw (which typically opens in late August or early September). In the meantime, hunters are encouraged to become familiar with the online draw application process.

A valid hunting license (or combination hunting and fishing license) is required to hunt wildlife in Arizona. No one under 14 may hunt big game without having completed a Hunter Education course. While it is not necessary for anyone 10 to 13 to complete a Hunter Education course before applying for a hunt permit-tag, these courses fill quickly. 

Consider registering now by visiting or calling 623-236-7239.
