With the changes already put in place by Arizona Game and fish department this year regarding OTC Archery deer. Residents and non residents hunters are still getting used to it. Now there are more changes coming from Arizona Game and fish regarding non resident opportunities.
On November 4th Arizona Game and Fish announced more changes specifically for the non resident hunters.. Non Resident Permit tags will now be capped for 2023 at 2,890 permits .
This number was determined by taking 10% of the previous years tag sold and round down to the nearest increment of 5. This will be used from now on to calculate the amount of OTC tags made available to non resident.
Starting on December 1st at 12:00 am non residents will have to log into https://otcarcherydeer.azgfd.gov/ to purchase their over the counter tag. You will no longer be able to buy your license form a 3rd party retailer like you have in the past.
