Hunting & Fishing Licenses

Resident/Non-Resident

If you are interested in obtaining any type of license, please have your driver’s license/ID on hand at the time of issue. Also, make sure the person that is getting the license, is the person that comes in to the office. If you are obtaining a hunting license, please have your prior hunting license or current hunter’s safety education card.

As of 2014, all licenses are issued electronically and printed on regular paper. The State now charges an additional $2 for processing licenses electronically.
