    4. What licenses are available for sale online and what are the fees?

      In order to qualify for any resident license/stamp privileges, you must be a resident of Arizona.  A.R.S 17-101.17 defines a resident as 17. "Resident", for the purposes of applying for a license, permit, tag or stamp, means a person who is:

      (a) A member of the armed forces of the United States on active duty and who is stationed in:

      (i) This state for a period of thirty days immediately preceding the date of applying for a license, permit, tag or stamp.

      (ii) Another state or country but who lists this state as the person's home of record at the time of applying for a license, permit, tag or stamp.

      (b) Domiciled* in this state for six months immediately preceding the date of applying for a license, permit, tag or stamp and who does not claim residency privileges for any purpose in any other state or jurisdiction.

      *Domicile is defined under A.R.S 17-101.7 as a person's true, fixed and permanent home and principal residence. Proof of domicile in this state may be shown as prescribed by rule by the commission.

      If the residency of the applicant is in question, the following factors will be considered. The applicant:

      1. Does not claim residency for any purpose in any other state or jurisdiction.

      2. Has been issued an Arizona drivers license or an Arizona commercial drivers license. The possession of an Arizona ID card is not considered evidence of residency.

      3. Is employed full-time in Arizona.

      4. Files federal and/or state income taxes as an Arizona resident.

      5. Is registered to vote in Arizona.

      6. Is enrolled in, or has minor children enrolled in an Arizona public school without payment of non-resident tuition.


      Children under the age of 10 are not required to possess a license. However, they may only take the bag limit for trout when fishing without a license. When hunting without a license, they must be accompanied by a properly-licensed adult. Also, a license is required for children, ages 10 and over, to enter the Big Game Drawing and subsequently to hunt big game if drawn.
