Arizona hunters who were unsuccessful in the recent 2018 spring draw still have an opportunity to receive a hunt permit-tag for javelina.

As of Dec. 21, 666 leftover hunt permit-tags were available for general hunts that begin Feb. 23. There also were 740 hunt permit-tags for archery-only hunts that begin Jan. 1; 809 hunt permit-tags for handgun, archery and muzzleloader hunts that get underway Feb. 9; and 30 hunt permit-tags for youth-only hunts that start Jan. 26.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department has posted a list of leftover hunt permit-tags on its website at www.azgfd.com/Hunting/Draw/. Hunters can apply on a first come, first served basis one of two ways: Fill out a paper application and bring it to any department office statewide, at which time a hunt permit-tag will be issued, or mail the completed application to: Arizona Game and Fish Department, Attn.: Draw/First Come, 5000 W. Carefree Highway, Phoenix, AZ  85086. Allow 10 to 15 business days to receive a hunt permit-tag by mail.
