Arizona to stop offering paper ‘book’ hunting and fishing licenses
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.
