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 their application.

Game and Fish spokesman Jim Paxon said the department had planned for high demand but the system still was overwhelmed.

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