A new Arizona hunting and fishing license structure will take effect on January 1, 2014, and the new 2014 licenses are now available for purchase online at http://www.azgfd.gov/eservices/licenses.shtml.

Simpler. The old structure, with more than 40 license and stamp options, has been simplified to just six license options and a single State Migratory Bird Stamp that includes waterfowl. View the new structure.

Bundled privileges for more value. The new General Fishing and Combination Hunt/Fish licenses now include privileges for trout, two-pole fishing, fishing at Community (Urban) Program waters, and fishing on Arizona’s shared Colorado River waters with California and Nevada. No need to buy separate stamps/licenses for those privileges.

Valid 365 days. The new licenses are valid for one year, not just for the calendar year.

Youth Combination Hunt and Fish license for only $5. The Youth Combination Hunt and Fish license costs only $5 (was $26.50 in 2013) and will be required for youth ages 10-17.

Make it a Combo. One of the best new values is a Combination Hunt/Fish license. Arizona residents pay just $20 more than a license for only one sport. The nonresident Combination Hunt/Fish license is also a better value now.

If you buy your license online, you may select your own start date (i.e., the date your license will become valid) up to 60 days beyond the date you purchase it, and it will be valid for one year from that date. If you are planning to apply for the 2014 elk/pronghorn draw, make sure you choose a date that ensures your hunting or combo license is valid as of the draw deadline day on Feb. 11, 2014, as you must have a valid license to put in for the draw. To buy your license online, you must have a working printer and print out your license per the instructions. The department will not mail your license to you.

Buy your new license online today and enjoy hunting and fishing in the coming year. More information about the changes in the license structure and fees can be found at http://www.azgfd.gov/licensesimplification.   back...
