AZ license exp. 2/11 Need a new one?
I recall reading about not needing to buy a new hunting license when applying in AZ if the current license is still valid on the draw deadline. My current license was bought 2/12/19 and expires 2/11/20. The draw deadline is 11:59 PM on 2/11.
Am I good to go with the application using my current license? I was going to give them a call this week but I'm sure some of you guys have a definitive answer on this.
In the past it has always been good if valid on the draw deadline.
I saw it written on the AZFG website The way I understand it, it states that the license has to be valid on the day of the draw not the draw deadline.
OK, I just re-read, they make it pretty clear that the license has to be valid on Tuesday Feb 11. I would take that to mean that it's still good for this draw.
You can skirt AZ for two years on license for the early draws, however it won't be good for the sheep draw ect. The good thing about AZ is that for the license cost of a NR at least you can apply across the board fairly cheaply. Couple that with some OTC opportunities and there are a lot worse state to apply to. S0 the short answer if your only in the elk draw...yea your good otherwise no need this current years license. which reminds me to go apply and buy the li and put in my applications as I will need next week for our OTC hunt anyway.
Trial153 (above) is right on. Additionally, if you time it right you can buy 2 licenses every 3 years and be in all draws (elk and sheep).
