Hey guys, I have two questions. I am hoping to come down and hunt mule deer OTC Jan 2018. First question is, do I buy my license right now in 2017 for the late season hunt which actually occurs in 2018 or do you buy a license in 2018? Second question is If I have to buy a hunting license now, I may as well put in for a point for elk since I already have the license. If I wasn't planning on hunting this coming year and I just wanted to buy the bonus point I still need to purchase a license correct? Hope that made sense?? First time applying in AZ any help appreciated. Thanks, Matt

Hunting license is good for 1 year from the date of purchase.

eta: You must have a current license to apply for a permit hunt or bonus point only.

Bought AZ license on Feb 1st, therefore good for Jan 2018. Was thinking of Javalina and OTC deer during the month of January. Any suggestions as to what zone that I would have a opportunity for both?

Most all areas that have Javelina also have Deer, some Mule Deer, some Coues and some both.

You need to have a valid license on the closing date of the published application period. You do not need a valid license to apply.

To apply you must have a current license or choose the option to purchase one on your application.

The online system doesn't have the ability to validate a license. If you buy a paper license you still need the ability to apply online before the shop sends in the paperwork. You can put any 'ol number in the box, ha/hb and 6 digits. The question came up a while back when a few guys thought the system wouldn't kick you out if you missed the app closing date. Not recommended but if you're in a pinch...

"Bob, The online application system is not able to validate a license at the time of application but we do have a validation process that we go through after deadline day. This is because of the 3 ways licenses are sold – online, in a Department office, and at a Dealer (paper).
