QUAIL HUNTINGHunting in Arizona Arizona Game and Fish DepartmentArizona Game and Fish Department

PHOENIX, Az. -( The Arizona Game and Fish Department reminds all active duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces stationed in Arizona that they, and their spouses, may purchase resident hunting and fishing licenses.

The current law stipulates that an active duty member permanently or temporarily stationed in Arizona may purchase a resident license permitting the taking of wildlife.

That privilege recently has been extended to their spouses, as well.   

Gov. Doug Ducey signed House Bill 2324, sponsored by state Rep. Frank Pratt (LD-8, Casa Grande), in May.

The Arizona Game and Fish Commission voted unanimously in January to support this expression of gratitude for those who serve.

The law became effective Aug. 6.   

“Through the years, the department and commission have been proud to provide opportunities for our active military members and veterans,” said Pat Madden, commission chairman. “We’re grateful for their sacrifice and service, and we’re honored to be able to extend this privilege to their spouses.” 

A valid license is required for the taking of wildlife, including fish, in Arizona.

A resident can purchase a combination license (hunting and fishing), valid for 365 days from the date of purchase, for only $57.  

Licenses can be purchased at all department offices and more than 300 license dealers statewide, as well as online by visiting

If a license is purchased online, it must be printed from a home computer. The department will not mail any license purchased online.

The license also will allow the spouse of an active duty member to apply for big game hunt permit-tags as a resident.

For more information, call (602) 942-3000.
