As the application deadline for the 2024 pronghorn and elk hunts in Arizona nears, the Arizona Game and Fish Department (AZGFD) is urging hunters to submit their applications promptly. The deadline is set for 11:59 p.m. (Arizona time) on Tuesday, February 6, 2024.

Essential Steps for Hunters:

  1. Application Submission: Hunters can apply online at AZGFD Draw. All applications must be received by the AZGFD by the deadline.

  2. Overview and Resources: Detailed information, including license requirements and bonus points, is available in the “2024 Pronghorn and Elk Hunt Draw Information” booklet. This can be accessed online or in printed form at license dealers across the state.

  3. AZGFD Portal Account: Applicants are encouraged to check their portal account at AZGFD Accounts for personal data, application history, and bonus points. Updating mailing addresses is crucial for the delivery of hunt permit-tags.

  4. Portal Account Registration: For new users, registering an AZGFD portal account is essential. This is the only place where draw results will be posted. The portal also offers dependent account features. Registration can be done at AZGFD Account Registration.

  5. Valid Arizona Hunting License: Applicants need a valid hunting or combination hunt and fish license, available for purchase at AZGFD License. The license must be valid through February 6, 2024.

  8. PointGuard Products: PointGuard Plus or standard PointGuard can be purchased to safeguard accumulated bonus points. This allows applicants to surrender their permit-tag if necessary. More information is available at AZGFD PointGuard.

  9. Hunter Questionnaire via Text: Applicants can choose to receive hunter questionnaires via text message by providing their phone number during the application process.
