Important Information for 2008
This list is for informational purposes only and lists important information or major
changes that have occurred since publication of the last hunt draw booklet.

Individuals should thoroughly read and understand the appropriate regulations
prior to making application or going afield. The current Arizona Hunting and Trapping
Regulations can be found at www.azgfd.gov, or at any department office or
license dealer.
Elk Hunters: Over-the-Counter Nonpermit-Tags Available Over-the counter
nonpermit-tags for elk are available in some hunt areas. Refer to Commission
Order 4 (page 22) for open areas and season dates. These tags are only sold at
Arizona Game and Fish Department offices. Elk numbers in these hunt areas are
very low; therefore, hunt success is expected to be very low. Make sure you obtain
permission to hunt on private lands. These hunts will not affect your Bonus Points
but do count towards your one-elk-per-calendar-year bag limit. More information
on these hunts can be found on the Department’s Web site (type Over-the-Counter
Elk Tags in the search box).
The Arizona Game and Fish Department Moved The Arizona Game and Fish Department
relocated its headquarters to 5000 W. Carefree Highway, Phoenix, AZ 85086.
Draw applications can be dropped off at the new headquarters building or any regional
office. Applications will not be accepted at the old headquarters location.

Juniors-Only Hunts Discounted youth hunt permit-tag fees apply only to Juniors-
Only Hunts. If you are applying for any general hunts, the higher of the hunt
permit-tag fees must be submitted.

For Reference to Laws and Rules Arizona Revised Statutes and Commission Rules
are printed in the Arizona Hunting and Trapping Regulations book, which is printed

2008 Pronghorn Antelope and Elk Hunt Draw Information
Who Can Go?
Everyone needs a license to hunt wildlife in Arizona.
You need in your possession a valid hunt
or combination hunt and fish license, plus any
required hunt permit-tags, nonpermit-tags, or
stamps. A Class H Three-Day Non-resident Hunting
License is not valid for big game.

YOUNG HUNTERS – Anyone 14 years of age
or older needs a license to hunt wildlife in Arizona.
You need in your possession a valid hunt
or combination hunt and fish license, plus any
required hunt permit-tags, nonpermit-tags or
stamps.
A person under 14 may hunt wildlife other than
big game without a license only when accompanied
by a properly licensed person 18 years
or older. No more than two unlicensed children
may accompany any license holder.
No one under the age of 14 may take big game
without having completed a Hunter Education
Course. No one under age 10 may hunt big
game in Arizona. To hunt big game, anyone 10
to 13 years of age must have in their possession
a valid hunt or combination hunt and fish
license, a valid Hunter Education Course completion
card, plus any required permit-tags,
nonpermit-tags and stamps.

Where to Buy Licenses
Arizona hunting licenses can be obtained from
license dealers throughout the state or from any
Arizona Game and Fish Department office (see
locations on page 2 of this booklet).
A list of license dealers can be found at www.
azgfd.gov.
If you are applying for a big game draw or bonus
points, you may purchase your general hunt
or combination hunt and fish license while you
are entering your application for the draw. The
license will not be mailed until the draw is finalized.

Family Licenses, Super Conservation
Licenses, and Child Hunting and Combination
Licenses may not be obtained through the
draw; these licenses must be purchased at department
offices.
Lifetime License Holders
If a lifetime license holder changes resident
status from Arizona, the licensee must then purchase
non-resident stamps, tags, and permits. A
non-resident tag or stamp can accompany your
lifetime resident license. If you are a lifetime license
holder who has moved out of state, the
10 percent non-resident cap does not apply to
you. The lifetime license will remain legal for the
taking of all wildlife as permitted by law. Residency
may be re-established after moving back
to Arizona and meeting the required time period
as set forth by law. Consult A.R.S. 17-335.01
for additional information.

Residency Requirements
A resident is a person who has been a bona fide
resident of the state of Arizona for six months
immediately preceding the date of application
for a license or a tag or a member of the armed
forces who has been stationed in Arizona for
a period of 30 days immediately preceding the
date of application for a license or a tag.
Arizona residents may purchase a resident license.

All other individuals must purchase a
non-resident license.
Three-Day Non-Resident License
A Class H, Three-Day Non-resident license, valid
for the taking of small game, fur-bearing animals,
predatory animals, nongame animals,
nongame birds, upland game birds and migratory
game birds, except ducks, geese and
swans is available at all license dealers. This license
is not valid for hunting big game nor is it
valid when applying for big game hunts through
the draw process.

Lost License or Tag Replacement
Lost licenses, hunt permit-tags and nonpermittags
may be replaced for a fee at any Arizona
Game and Fish Department license dealer. Consult
R12-4-103 Duplicate Tags and Licenses for
additional information. Stamps cannot be replaced,
they must be repurchased.

Physically Challenged Hunters
Those hunters who are physically challenged
may qualify for a Challenged Hunter Access/Mobility
Permit (CHAMP). Consult R12-4-217 for a
description of this permit. Contact any Arizona
Game and Fish Department office for additional
information and application.

Non-US Citizens Wanting to Hunt
in Arizona
Pursuant to new regulations by the U.S. Bureau
of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF),
non-immigrant aliens who want to temporarily
import firearms and/or ammunition into the
United States for the allowable purpose of taking
wildlife will need an ATF import permit and
valid hunting license in possession at the time
of entry/import into the United States. For further
information or to make application for the
import permit, contact ATF’s Firearms and Explosives
Import Branch at (202) 927-8320, or
download an application from the ATF Web site
at www.atf.treas.gov.
Tag Transfers
Under Arizona Revised Statutes and Arizona
Game and Fish Commission Rules there are ways
people can transfer big game tags to children.
A parent, grandparent or legal guardian may
allow the parent’s, grandparent’s or guardian’s
minor child or minor grandchild to use
the parent’s, grandparent’s or guardian’s big
game permit or tag to take big game pursuant
to the following requirements:
• The minor child is 10 to 17 years old on the
date of transfer;
• The minor child has a vaild hunting or combination
license on the date of transfer
• A minor child less than 14 years old has
satisfactorily completed a department-approved
hunter education course by date of
transfer.
• The parent or guardian must accompany the
child in the field or, if a grandparent allows
a minor grandchild to use the grandparent’s
permit or tag, the grandparent, parent or the
child’s guardian must accompany the child
in the field. In either case, the adult must be
within 50 yards of the child when the animal
is taken.

Once a tag is transferred, the original permittee
may no longer use it.
A person may transfer his or her game tag
for use by a child with a life threatening medical
condition. Consult ARS 17-332 for more
information.

Arizona Game and Fish Department — www.azgfd.gov
The Draw
When the number of hunt permits for a species
in a particular area must be limited to prevent
over-harvest of wildlife, the Commission Order
governing seasons for that species assigns
a hunt number to a designated area, and a
hunt permit-tag is required to take that species
in that area. Hunt permit-tags are issued
through a computerized random drawing. Big
game tags not issued through the drawing process
are nonpermit-tags. Nonpermit-tags may
be purchased directly from Department offices
or through license dealers.
Qualifications
Individuals wishing to participate in a drawing or
to purchase bonus points must apply in writing
using the Hunt Permit-Tag Application Form.
Each applicant must possess a valid license for
the year in which the hunt will take place or
possess a lifetime, pioneer or disabled veteran’s
license. Non-resident Three-Day Class H licenses
may not be used in applying for big game
hunt permit-tags. Juveniles applying for big
game hunts must be licensed. Applicants not
licensed for the year in which the hunt will take
place must submit the information and fees required
for a license on each paper application
submitted. Only one license will be issued to
you and you will receive a refund for the other
license fees submitted. The license will not be
mailed until the draw is finalized.
Applying For A Hunt
Paper applications for hunt permit-tags must
be made on Hunt Permit-Tag Application Forms
available at Department offices, Web site, and
license dealers. Please use the current year’s
application form, that is WHITE in color. Do
not use any previous year’s application form
as certain important changes have been made.
Applications not prepared in a legible manner
may be deemed not valid and shall be rejected
as specified in R12-4-104(D). Use standard
blue or black ink (no gel ink).
No more than four people may apply on one
application in one envelope. All applicants in a
group must apply for the same hunt number(s)
and in the same order of preference on the
same form.
No person may submit more than one valid application
per genus of wildlife in any calendar
year, except as specified in R12-4-104(L), when
genera are drawn in multiple drawings.
No more than one genus may be included on
each Hunt Permit-Tag Application Form. Use
a separate form and envelope for each genus
of wildlife you wish to hunt. You can list a
general hunt as your first choice and another
weapons type hunt for the same genus as another
choice on the same application—just be
sure they are in the same numerical series. Use
only one application per genus, even if you are
mixing weapons choices. Do not cut or alter application
form.

Only a single application and the correct fees
must be included in one (1) envelope. More
than one (1) application in an envelope may
result in rejection of all applications.
Hunt Permit, Bonus Points

Disclaimer
The issuance of any big game permit has no
express or implied guarantee or warranty of
hunter success. Any person holding a valid permit
assumes the risk that circumstances beyond
the control of Arizona Game and Fish may prevent
the permit holder from using the permit.
In such situations, Arizona Game and Fish disclaims
any responsibility to reissue or replace
a permit, to reinstate bonus points or to refund
any fees, except under specific circumstances,
such as activation of military or emergency personnel,
as stated in R12-4-107.

Fees
When submitting paper applications, each applicant
shall enclose the following fees:
1. The fee for the appropriate hunt permit-tag,
which includes the permit application fee.
2. Fee for a hunting license, if a license is requested.
Be sure to enclose license fees on
each application, if required, for each person
who is applying on the application for
a hunting license.
3. Discounted youth hunt permit-tag fees
are for “Juniors-Only” designated hunts.
If a person is applying for a Juniors-Only
hunt and a regular hunt on the same application,
the higher of the tag fees must
be enclosed.
Each payment enclosed with a hunt permit-tag
application shall be made by certified check, cashier’s
check, money order, or personal check
or draft payable to the Arizona Game and Fish
Department. Cash will not be accepted and will
result in rejection.
One personal check or money order can cover
all fees for the application.
The permit and license fees are specified in the
fee schedule on pages 6–7. The hunt permit-tag
fees on page 6 include the non-refundable application
fee.
A $25 fee will be charged for each returned or
dishonored check.
Submitting Applications
Applications (except first-come, sandhill crane,
pheasant, and raptor applications) may be
hand-delivered to Department offices in Phoenix,
Mesa, Tucson, Flagstaff, Pinetop, Kingman
or Yuma. Mailed applications must be sent only
to the Department’s Phoenix Office at P.O. Box
52002, Phoenix, AZ 85072-2002. On deadline
days, Department business offices close at 5:00
p.m. (MST), but applications can be delivered to
drop boxes until 7:00 p.m., (MST). Drop boxes
are locked promptly at 7:00 p.m., (MST). All applications
must be received by the Department
before the deadline. Deadlines for submission
are specified in the Hunt Permit-Tag Application
Schedule on page 12. Postmarks don’t count.
Complete and proper preparation of an application
is the sole responsibility of the
applicant.

What Happens To My
Application?
Any application not properly prepared, submitted
with insufficient fees, cash, or one that is
illegible is not valid and will be rejected.
If there is an error that will result in the rejection
of an application and the application is
received by the Department on or before Friday,
Jan. 25, 2008, we will make three attempts


Draw Information
2008 Pronghorn Antelope and Elk Hunt Draw Information
within a 24-hour period to notify you by telephone
if a phone number is provided. If we are
able to contact you by phone and our customer
service representatives can correct the application
at that time, they will do so and enter the
application in the Draw. If an error cannot be
corrected by phone, we will still attempt to notify
you of the error and advise you to re-submit
your application. The applicant may then prepare
a new Hunt Permit-Tag Application Form,
include the appropriate fees and re-apply by
the scheduled deadline date.
If any applicant in a group is rejected for any
reason, all other applicants in that group will
also be rejected.
No hunt permit-tag will be issued to anyone in a
group if there are not sufficient hunt permit-tags
available for all applicants in that group.
Hunt permit-tags will be mailed to each successful
applicant.

What If I’m Not Drawn?
Please use one of the methods (telephone or
Internet) described on page 2 to access draw
results. These methods of access shall serve as
the official notification of draw results.
Over-payments and hunt permit-tag fees received
with unsuccessful applications will be
returned to applicant “A,” as shown on the Hunt
Permit-Tag Application Form. Application and license
fees will not be refunded. You will not be
issued or charged for more than one license.
If you or a member of your group elected to
donate your fees or a portion thereof, the donation
will not be refunded. A hunting license is
required to apply in a drawing. If an application
is rejected and a license has been requested,
the license will not be issued.
Unsuccessful, valid applications will be awarded
bonus points.
Big game hunt permit-tags remaining after the
drawing will be issued on a first-come, firstserved
basis as specified in the hunt permit-tag
application schedule on page 12.
Purchasing A Bonus Point Only
In the event you do not wish to participate in a
big game drawing for pronghorn antelope and
elk, but still wish to accumulate bonus points
for these genera, you may “purchase a bonus
point.”

When completing your application, you must
choose the bonus point hunt number established
for that genus as your first choice. A bonus point
hunt number is established within each applicable
Commission Order. If you choose this
hunt number, you may not choose any other
hunt number on your application. If the bonus
point hunt number is any choice other than
the first choice or any other hunt numbers
appear on the application, your application
will be rejected. You may purchase only one
bonus point per genus per drawing.
To purchase a bonus point, you must have
previously purchased a hunting license or apply
for a hunting license through the draw for
the year in which the hunt will take place. You
must also include the application fee per applicant.
Your application will NOT be entered into
the draw and you will not receive a refund on
the license fee or the application fee. Do not
include the fee for the hunt permit-tag for the
genus in which you are applying for the bonus
point. A bonus point purchase costs you only
the license fee (if needed) and the $7.50 application
fee per applicant.

If you apply for a bonus point only using the established
bonus point hunt number, you may
NOT submit another application for the same
genus. To do so will cause both applications to
be rejected as duplicate applications.
All applicants in a group must apply for the
same established bonus point hunt number.
The application will not be included in the random
number drawing and the individual(s) on
the application will each receive a bonus point
for that genus.

Hunter Education
Hunter Education programs across the country are designed to continue the hunting heritage by developing safe, responsible,
ethical and knowledgeable hunters. Hunting is a hallowed family tradition that teaches respect for life, each
other and nature. It teaches accountability and responsibility. If you are a new hunter, or want to learn about wildlife
conservation, the environment, firearms and gun safety, our hunter education courses can help. The program will also
benefit experienced people who want to become more proficient hunters and conservationists. While hunter safety is the
program focus, hunter ethics, wildlife management, survival, and other important topics are also covered. Hunting is safe,
as well as being community and family sustaining. Enroll your family in our hunter education program today. For more
information, visit www.azgfd.gov or call (623) 236-7235 or (623) 236-7236.

as well as topics such as:
• Safety, responsibility, hunter education funding
sources.
• Behaviors of a responsible hunter, preventing
accidents, planning and preparation,
clothing, topographic maps and compasses,
survival skills, coping with weather related
conditions and basic first aid.

approaching downed game, field care of
game, hunter responsibility and ethics, the
five stages of hunter development, North
American Model of Wildlife Conservation
and market hunting.
• Arizona’s Hunting Regulations — Develop an
understanding of the most often violated Arizona
game laws, rules and regulations.
10 Commandments
of Hunting Safety
and TAB +1
1. Treat every fifirearm as if it were loaded!
It might be, even if you think it isn’t!
2. Always keep the muzzle in a safe
direction. Keep control of the direction of
the muzzle at all times.
3. Be sure of the target and beyond. Be
aware of what is in front of the target.
Know the identifying features of the
game you hunt. Make sure you have an
adequate backstop — don’t shoot at a flflat,
hard surface or water.
4. +1 Keep your fifinger outside the trigger
guard until ready to shoot. This is the best
way to prevent an accidental discharge.
5. Check your barrel and ammunition.
Make sure the barrel and action are clear
of obstructions, and carry only the proper
ammunition for your fifirearm.
6. Unload fifirearm when not in use. Leave
action open; carry fifirearm in a case and
unloaded to and from the shooting area.
7. Point a fifirearm only at something you
intend to shoot. Avoid all horseplay with
a gun.
8. Don’t run, jump, or climb with a loaded
fifirearm. Unload a fifirearm before you
climb a fence or tree, or jump a ditch. Pull
a fifirearm toward you by the butt, not the
muzzle.
9. Store fifirearms and ammunition separately
and safely. Store each in secured locations
beyond the reach of children and careless
adults.
10. Avoid alcoholic beverages before and
during shooting. Also avoid mind- or
behavior-altering medicines or drugs.
