AZGFD to provide after-hours assistance by telephone only
PHOENIX — The deadline to apply for 2022 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 14. 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 14. 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 Customer ID. This is a must to submit an application. There are four ways to locate a Customer ID: 1) Log into your AZGFD portal account, and click on “View Details” under “My AZGFD Dashboard; 2) Check your hunting or combination hunt and fish license, if it was purchased online; 3) A Customer ID number can be retrieved by visiting www.azgfd.com/hunting/draw/. If the account is located, AZGFD will send the Customer ID number to that email address; 4) Call AZGFD at 602-942-3000 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
- 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 a PointGuard product. Choosing PointGuard Plus, or the standard PointGuard, ensures that applicants can surrender their hunt permit-tag for any reason, and the accumulated bonus points that were expended to draw that hunt permit-tag will be reinstated. A portal account is no longer required to purchase a PointGuard product. Information: www.azgfd.gov/pointguard.
For an overview of the application service, including license requirements, applying for bonus points and payment information, see Page 26 of the “2022-2023 Arizona Hunting Regulations” booklet. Printed versions are available at license dealers statewide.
