Military specifically invited to register for new elk hunt Arizona Game and Fish Department

A bull elk roams a forest in Arizona. Military hunters who take advantage of the Arizona Game and Fish Department and Camp Navajo cooperatively provided hunt opportunity for elk at Camp Navajo that honors the military could potentially bag an animal such as this one.

New for 2014, the Arizona Game and Fish Department and Camp Navajo worked cooperatively to provide a hunt opportunity for elk at Camp Navajo that honors the service and sacrifices of men and women from all services and components of the military. Camp Navajo Training Site is a National Guard training site and ammunition storage depot in Bellemont, located in north-central Arizona.

Elk tags set aside for “military” are available to uniformed active duty and honorably retired men and women of all services and components. These are waiting to be claimed by a qualified veteran or member of the military services who apply before the Feb. 11 hunt draw deadline. The hunts start in September and end in December.

Tags available specifically for the military include:
88 “Military” tags for uniformed active duty and honorably retired veterans of all military services and components.

25 “Disabled Veterans” tags for those with Veterans Affairs certification of a service-connected disability of 50 percent or greater. Individuals who fall into the “Disabled Veterans” category also include people who have an Arizona Disabled Veterans license which requires 100-percent disability.

12 “Wounded Warrior” tags for those with documentation of receipt of the Purple Heart or who are enrolled in one of the Department of Defense’s Wounded Warrior programs.

Qualified applicants must still purchase a license, enter the hunt draw and, if drawn, purchase their elk tag.

Successful applicants will also be required to attend in person a hunter certification course at Camp Navajo prior to hunting.

Military applicants must meet the appropriate residency requirements (resident/non-resident) when purchasing their licenses and applying for tags.

In order to obtain the Camp Navajo hunt numbers, potential applicants must visit the Camp Navajo hunt website, www.azguard.gov/CampNavajo.htm.

The 2014 elk and pronghorn regulations may be downloaded at: www.azgfd.gov/h_f/hunting.shtml.
Hard copies and paper applications may be picked up at any license dealer in Arizona.

Qualified applicants may submit their hunt draw application online at http://az.gov/azgfd/draw/home.xhtml.
Or, apply in person using paper applications at: Arizona Game and Fish Office, Region 5, 555 North Greasewood Rd., Tucson.
