Demand for Ariz. hunts overwhelms online service

Updated:

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - The application deadline for Arizona's elk and pronghorn antelope hunts has been extended to Thursday evening.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department says 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 says the department had planned for high demand but the system still was overwhelmed.

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