Last call: Online applications for 2019 spring draw due tonight
Posted October 9, 2018
Deadline is 11:59 p.m. (Arizona time)
PHOENIX – Only hours remain to submit online applications for 2019 hunt permit-tags issued through the draw process for spring turkey, javelina, bison and bear.
To apply online, visit https://draw.azgfd.gov, follow the instructions, and then select the “Enter the Draw” button at the bottom. The Arizona Game and Fish Department must receive all online applications no later than 11:59 tonight (Arizona time), Tuesday, Oct. 9.
The “2019 Spring Turkey, Javelina, Bison and Bear Hunt Draw Information” booklet is available online at www.azgfd.gov/draw. Printed booklets also are available at department offices and license dealers statewide.
Applicants must possess a valid Arizona hunting license to apply online for a hunt permit-tag. That license must be valid on the last day of the application period (Oct. 9, 2018). Need a license? Then consider buying more than just an individual hunting license. Go online and purchase a combo hunt and fish license that will be valid for the next 365 days – and for only $20 more (for state residents) than the price of an individual hunting or fishing license. Visit https://www.azgfd.com/bestofbothworlds/ to get a combo hunt and fish license today. A youth combo hunt and fish license is $5.
Meanwhile, the department encourages applicants to consider purchasing PointGuard when applying online for a hunt permit-tag. PointGuard ensures if a successful applicant is unable to participate in a hunt for any reason, the accumulated bonus points that were expended to draw that hunt permit-tag will be reinstated.
Applicants first must sign up for a free AZGFD portal account to purchase PointGuard (visit www.azgfd.gov, click on the “My Account” button in the upper right-hand corner of the home page, then select the “Create Account” option). PointGuard is $5 per species, per applicant, purchased at the time of completing the online application, or prior to the application period deadline.
