PHOENIX – The process for buying hunting and fishing licenses in Arizona is moving fully into the digital age.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department announced Wednesday it will no longer offer traditional paper “book” licenses after Dec. 31.

Many, but not all, current dealers will continue to sell hunting and fishing licenses, but only through the state’s electronic system starting Jan. 1.

Click here for a list of locations, including Game and Fish offices, where in-person license sales will continue in 2022.

Hunting and fishing licenses are always available for purchase online through the AZGFD website.

The electronic versions can be printed out at home or saved to a cellphone as a photo or PDF. Lost printouts can be reprinted for free.

Here is the current price list, with all licenses other than short-term options good for 365 days from the date of purchase.

  • Resident hunting: $37
  • Resident fishing: $37
  • Resident hunt/fish combo: $57
  • Nonresident fishing: $55
  • Nonresident hunt/fish combo: $160 (nonresident hunters must buy the combo)
  • Youth combo hunt/fish for ages 10-17, resident or nonresident: $5
  • Short-term combo hunt/fish: $15/day residents, $20/day nonresidents
  • Migratory bird stamps: $5
