TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — As part of a move to modernize their licensing system, the Arizona Game and Fish Department will no longer offer traditional paper 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 and some dealers will no longer sell licenses after Dec. 31.

Hunters and anglers can find a license dealer offering electronic license purchases on the Arizona Game and Fish website.

Customers can also purchase their hunting, fishing or hunt/fish combo licenses online directly at, or in person at AZGFD offices during normal business hours (8-5 M-F).

Licenses purchased online must be paid for with a credit or debit card. Licenses purchased at an AZGFD office can be paid for with card, check or cash.

All licenses except short-term are valid for 365 days.
