To hunt deer in Arizona, you need a valid hunting or combination license and a deer tag.

For Archery-Only Nonpermit-Tag hunts, you may purchase a nonpermit-tag from a license dealer as prescribed in R12-4-114. If a person is applying for a Youth-Only hunt and a regular hunt on the same application, the higher of the tag fees must be enclosed.

The Department offers “Youth-Only” designated hunts, in which persons are eligible to participate up to their 18th birthday. A youth hunter, whose18th birthday occurs after opening day of a “Youth-Only” designated hunt for which the hunter has a valid permit or tag, may continue to participate for the duration of the “Youth-Only” designated hunt. Persons ages 10 through 13 must have satisfactorily completed a Hunter Education Course that is approved by the Director per ARS 17-333.2 (C). Hunter Education classes fill up quickly. If you need your Hunter Education card before your hunt, get ahead of the game and register now. To register for a Hunter Education class, visit www.azgfd.gov/huntered or call 623-236-7239. No one under age10 may hunt big game in Arizona. A youth must pay the higher fee unless applying only for “Youth-Only” hunts.

Archery Deer Nonpermit-Tag Special Regulation

An archery deer nonpermit-tag remains valid through the duration of the calendar year it was issued in. Hunters targeting deer in January are required to secure a new tag for that year. Ensuring their selected hunting unit remains open is the hunter's obligation, which can be verified either by visiting the Arizona Game and Fish Department's dedicated status page at Archery Deer Report or by contacting the department directly at 623-236-7961.

Mandatory Harvest Reporting

Harvest reporting for archery deer nonpermit-tag holders is compulsory and must be completed within 48 hours post-harvest. This process is facilitated through the Archery Deer Report portal or by phoning 623-236-7961. Reportable details include the hunter's full name, their valid hunting license number, the tag number, the deer species harvested, and the specific management unit of the harvest, along with a reachable phone number for follow-up correspondence if required.

 

ARCHERY-ONLY NONPERMIT-TAG REQUIRED DEER

Open Areas do not include areas within municipal parks, municipal preserves, county parks, county preserves, airports, golf courses, or postedwater treatment facilities (except as specifically opened in this Commission Order) or areas closed to hunting under A.R.S.
