PHOENIX – The Arizona Game and Fish Department has posted the “2019 Spring Turkey, Javelina, Bison and Bear Hunt Draw Information” online at www.azgfd.gov/draw.
The department now is accepting paper applications for 2019 hunt permit-tags issued through the draw process for spring turkey, javelina, bison and bear. The online application service is expected to be available in early to mid-September.
The deadline for all paper applications is 7 p.m. (Arizona time) Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2018. Postmarks do not count. Paper applications can be mailed to: Arizona Game and Fish Department, Attn.: Drawing Section, P.O. Box 74020, Phoenix, AZ 85087-1052, or dropped off at any department office statewide.
The printed “2019 Spring Turkey, Javelina, Bison and Bear Hunt Draw Information” booklets are expected to be available at department offices and license dealers statewide in early September.
Applicants must have a valid Arizona hunting license to apply for a spring hunt permit-tag. But 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. As a reminder, a youth combo hunt and fish license (ages 10 to 17) remains $5.
