2020 Arizona leftover elk hunting permit list

2020 leftover Arizona elk permit list

If you didn't draw an Arizona elk tag... there are a few options for you. But... the majority of these hunts will be tough.

For 2020, there are 824 leftover elk permit tags

Note: the majority of these permits are for the minimal occurrence zone/low density (general) hunt.

The list of available licenses can be found here and also in the tables below. These hunts are available for both residents and nonresidents on a first-come-first-served basis. Keep in mind that a lot of these elk permits are limited opportunity, antlerless, a small handful are archery only bull elk and general elk, with that said, elk hunting will be tough.

According to Arizona Game and Fish, Hunt No. 3799 – Units 12A, 12B, 13A, and 13B have an extremely low-density elk population, about 40-50 elk combined for all four units. These units are specifically managed for wildlife values other than elk, and an established elk population is not desirable. The intent of this hunt is to eliminate this elk population. The Department cautions you that due to extremely low elk densities, hunt success will be very low, likely less than 5%.

Special fees required for Hunt No. 3799: 

Resident elk tag fee: $48.00
Nonresident elk tag fee: $50.00

For those who qualify there are military hunts available at Camp Navajo. For more information contact: Camp Navajo at 928-773-3225 or visit this link.
