Hunting and fishing licenses can generally be purchased at any retail outlet that deals in hunting and fishing equipment, such as sporting goods stores. Regulations booklets, Federal Duck Stamps, and season/harvest information can usually be obtained through those retailers.
In addition to licensing, State agencies have jurisdiction over the following:
- Hunting and fishing regulations such as season timing and duration. Specific dates and regulations can be found through the link to State agencies.
- Animal control and management of non-endangered wildlife species;
- management of State parks, forests and recreation areas; and
- game warden information.
Note to Migratory Waterfowl Hunters:
In order to hunt migratory waterfowl you must possess both a State hunting license and a Federal Duck Stamp. Some states also require you to purchase a State waterfowl hunting stamp. Duck Stamps can be purchased at any retail outlet that sells hunting and fishing equipment, such as sporting goods stores, K-Mart, Wal-Mart, etc. Duck Stamps can also be ordered online, or by calling either (800) DUCK499 or (800) STAMP24. Further information can be found through the Federal Duck Stamp Office home page.
