Arizona Big Game Tag Draw Process

Draw Cycles and Hunt Permit Application Deadline Days

The Arizona Game and Fish Department conducts three separate application and draw cycles for big game hunt permit-tags. Beginning in 2007, the Department for the first time held a separate draw for antelope and elk. This change was made to let hunters know earlier if they have been drawn for these two popular big game animals.

Species: Draw Deadlines

  • Pronghorn antelope, elk
    • Second Tuesday in February (pending Commission approval)
  • Deer, fall turkey, fall javelina, bighorn sheep fall bison, pheasant
    • Second Tuesday in June (pending Commission approval)
  • Spring javelina, spring bear, spring turkey, spring bison
    • Second Tuesday in October (pending Commission approval)
