Leftover hunt permit-tags include:

  • 52 — limited opportunity (general) antlerless elk.
  • 4 — archery-only bull elk.
  • 3 — archery-only antlerless elk.
  • 1 — limited opportunity (HAM) antlerless elk.

A total of 633 hunt permit-tags remain for the minimal occurrence zone/low density (general) hunt in game management units 12A, 12B, 13A and 13B.

The department will begin accepting paper applications for leftover hunt permit-tags on a first-come, first-served basis — by mail only — beginning Monday, March 21. All completed paper applications must be addressed to: Arizona Game and Fish Department, Attn.: Draw/First Come, 5000 W. Carefree Highway, Phoenix, AZ  85086. There is no “mini” draw.
