FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — The application deadline for Arizona’s elk and
pronghorn antelope hunts has been extended to Thursday evening.
The Arizona Game and Fish Department said high demand for the hunts prevented
many people from accessing an online site earlier this week or from completing
Game and Fish spokesman Jim Paxon said the department had planned for high

Online and paper applications must be received by 7 p.m. to be
considered. Paxon said postmarks do not count.
