General | December 29, 2021

Below is a news release from the Arizona Game and Fish Department.

In a move to further modernize its licensing system, the Arizona Game and Fish Department (AZGFD) will no longer offer traditional paper “book” licenses sold through license dealers beginning Jan. 1.

Many current dealers will continue to sell licenses after Dec. 31, but they will do so through AZGFD’s online purchase system. Some dealers will no longer sell licenses after Dec. 31. See list of license dealers offering electronic license purchases beginning Jan. 1.

As always, customers can also purchase their hunting, fishing or hunt/fish combo licenses online directly at https://license.azgfd.com/, 24/7, or in person at AZGFD offices during normal business hours (8-5 M-F).

There are several benefits to buying your license online:

  • Ease of use. With just a few clicks of a computer mouse or taps on the screen of a smartphone or tablet, anyone can purchase a license online quickly and easily.
  • Print your license or save it on your phone. A license purchased online can be printed from your printer, or it can be saved as a photo or PDF to a smartphone. The electronic version is valid if requested by an AZGFD official as long as the license hasn’t expired.
  • Reprint a lost or misplaced license for free. Lose or misplace a printed license? No worries, you can print a new one from your printer anytime at no charge.
