Discover Arizona’s Non-Resident Hunting Licenses

Arizona has an incredible variety of year-round hunting opportunities, for both big game and small game. Arizona is comprised of 60 percent public land. There is also plenty of private land made available through the Arizona Game and Fish Department’s Access Program.

For non-resident hunters

A non-resident hunter can purchase an over-the-counter archery-only non-permit tag for either white-tailed or mule deer, or a leftover hunt permit-tag for javelina, without having to expend accumulated bonus points.

The winter months also are for the birds – like Mearns’ quail, one of the most enjoyable of game birds to hunt over a dog. In fact, with scaled and Gambel’s quail inhabiting the same part of the state as Mearns’ it’s possible for a wing-shooter to complete the Arizona “Grand Slam.” Keep that shotgun close at hand, as dove and waterfowl seasons also will be underway.

A valid Arizona hunting license is a tremendous value. A non-resident license costs $160 and is valid 365 days from the date of purchase. That’s only 44 cents a day! Licenses are available online, at department offices and license dealers statewide.
