Arizona Accepting 2019 Sandhill Crane Applications

PHOENIX — The Arizona Game and Fish Department (AZGFD) reminds hunters that paper and online applications are being accepted for 2019 hunt permit-tags issued through the fall draw process for sandhill crane.

As the department continues transitioning to online-only hunt draws, there no longer will be a separate paper-only application and draw process conducted during the summer for sandhill crane.

All paper applications must be received by 7 p.m. (Arizona time) Tuesday, May 14. Postmarks don’t 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 deadline for online applications is 11:59 p.m. (Arizona time) Tuesday, June 11.

AZGFD has posted the “2019-20 Arizona Hunting Regulations” at The printed booklets are expected to be available in the next week or two at department offices and license dealers statewide.

The hunt permit-tag fee is $43 for Arizona residents, $45 for non-residents (each successful applicant will receive three hunt permit-tags). In order to participate in the draw, an applicant must have or apply for a valid hunting license. If an applicant is not licensed at the time of application (online or paper), he or she must purchase a license by completing the license form section and include payment with the application.

The first of 12 three-day seasons begins Nov. 22, the latest starts Dec. 16. A three-day, youth-only season begins Dec. 13. The bag and possession limit is three sandhill cranes per calendar year.
