Hunters in Arizona still have a chance to secure a permit tag for select 2023 elk hunts as leftover permit tags remain available. The Arizona Game and Fish Department have listed the remaining hunt permit tags on its website. The permits include a limited opportunity for general and HAM antlerless elk, archery-only antlerless elk, youth-only antlerless elk, and archery-only bull elk.

Starting March 27, the department will begin accepting paper applications on a first-come, first-served basis through the mail only. No “mini” draw will be conducted, so it is essential to send in applications as early as possible. The department warns applicants that it may take up to 15 business days to receive a permit tag by mail.

Leftover Elk Permits

Any leftover permits will go on sale on April 3 at all department offices, also on a first-come, first-served basis. Some of the leftover permits are for Hopi hunt open areas and are available to both tribal members and non-tribal members.

Military hunts at Camp Navajo also have leftover permits available for those who qualify. The department recommends visiting the official website of the army national guard in Arizona for more information on how to qualify for these permits.

It is essential to remember that license and hunt permit-tag requirements apply to all applicants. A complete set of guidelines is available in the “2023 Pronghorn and Elk Hunt Draw Information” booklet, which can be found online. Additionally, applicants can contact the department for more information on how to proceed with the application process.

In conclusion, if you are interested in elk hunting, Arizona still has permits available for 2023 elk hunts. Remember to check the Arizona Game and Fish Department’s website for a list of remaining hunt permit tags and to send your application via mail as early as possible. Good luck and happy hunting!
