PHOENIX — The deadline to apply for 2021 hunt-permit tags for deer, fall turkey, fall javelina, bighorn sheep, fall bison and sandhill crane is only hours away.
Applications must be received by the Arizona Game and Fish Department (AZGFD) by 11:59 p.m. (Arizona time) tonight, Tuesday, June 8. To apply, visit www.azgfd.gov/hunting/draw.
AZGFD is available to assist applicants. Customer service representatives can be reached from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. today by calling 602-942-3000. In addition, customer service representatives will be available to provide after-hours assistance — by telephone only — from 5 to 11:59 p.m. tonight.
To expedite the process, applicants are encouraged to be prepared with the following before calling AZGFD:
- An applicant’s hunting or combination hunt and fish license must be valid through today, June 8. All applicants, including youth (ages 10-17), who are applying for a hunt permit-tag or bonus point only, must possess a license that is valid on the last day of the application period. Licenses can be purchased online at www.azgfd.gov/license/.
- Know your Department ID. This is a must to submit an application. There are three ways to locate a Department ID: Log into your AZGFD portal account and click on “View Details” under “My AZGFD Dashboard,” check your hunting or combination hunt and fish license if it was purchased online, or call AZGFD at 602-942-3000 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. For more information, see Page 26 of the “2021-2022 Arizona Hunting Regulations” booklet.
- Know where you want to hunt. It’s important to have your four-digit hunt number(s) pre-determined (not game management units).
All applicants are encouraged to purchase PointGuard, which allows hunters to surrender their hunt permit-tag(s) for any reason without losing their bonus points. Information: www.azgfd.gov/pointguard.
For more information, call 602-942-3000.
