Question about Arizona

If not succesful in the draw, does the Arizona Game and Fish Department refund the license fees that were required in order to put for the draw?

If I'm not wrong, the current license fee for a Non-Res in AZ is $151.25

Nope, you have to purchase a license to be able to put in for the draw. You will be refunded the tag price if you don't draw.

Wow!!! Seems like a heavy price to pay just to be able to put in for the draws.

A lot of states are starting

A lot of states are starting to do it that way.  Nevada does but their kicker is that if you want a bonus point you have to pay, if you don't want a point then you don't have to.  In Utah you have to purchase a license but if you work it right you only need to purchase one ever two years since the life of the license is 365 days from when you purchase it. 

I go to Arizona every year to hunt javelina so I have the license and then I have been buying a bonus point for deer every year for $7.50 but that looks like it is going to change next year since they are revamping the system.

New Mexico recently started a similar system but so far, the hunter still has the option to get a refund if not succesful in the draw.

What changes is the state of Arizona looking at?

It looks like they approved the license fee increases but it isn't that bad since they haven't increased them since 2005.
