All hunters and fishermen must be properly licensed by the Arizona Game and Fish Department. See current year Arizona Hunting and Fishing Regulations for details.

Arizona general hunting licenses are available at most sporting goods stores and the Mountain View Adventure Center (MVAC) (formerly Sportsman Center). To qualify as a resident, an individual must reside in Arizona for six months immediately preceding the date of application for a license, or be a member of the armed forces stationed in Arizona for at least 30 days immediately preceding the date of application. Post-hunting and fishing licenses are issued Wednesday through Sunday at the MVAC. Active duty and retired military and their family members are authorized to hunt on post. Fort Huachuca civil service employees and their family members are also eligible to hunt on post. All hunters must have completed a bonafide hunter education course before hunting on post. Such a course is not mandatory for off-post hunting. Fishing is open to the general public.
Mule deer, white-tailed deer and javelina are some of the big game species hunted at Fort Huachuca. Bird hunters have their choice among three species of quail and two of dove. Special seasons and hunting areas exist for bow hunters. Mountain lions can be hunted year round with a lion tag. No trapping is allowed on the post.
The taking of any species of animal at Fort Huachuca not specifically authorized by command directive is prohibited. Gila monsters are protected in Arizona, and the destruction of reptiles is discouraged. Three species of rattlesnake are also protected by state law: ridgenosed, banded rock and twin-spotted rattlesnakes. Hunting is managed according to seasons and bag limits are established by the Arizona Game and Fish Commission. Hunters are required to sign out daily with the Military Police Desk for hunting.
Fishing is available at Fort Huachuca and is open to the general public, with as many as seven ponds in years of good precipitation open to adults and children. These ponds may be stocked in winter with rainbow trout from a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service hatchery, Department of Interior. Parker Canyon Lake is located 25 miles southwest of the post. It is a 130-acre lake maintained by the Arizona Game and Fish Department. Because ongoing drought conditions have affected Fort Huachuca's pond significantly, anglers are encouraged to visit Parker Canyon Lake, and other lakes in the regions such as Patagonia Lake State Park.
All post fishers are required to purchase a state license, trout stamp and post permit prior to fishing for trout. Those under age 14 may fish without an Arizona license when accompanied by a properly licensed adult. A juvenile fishing permit is required for ages 9 through 13.
