Hunting and fishing licenses are generally valid for the calendar year. The exceptions are game bird hunting permits and validations that run from Aug. 1 to July 31 each year.

How to buy a license

Your license dollars help pay for programs that improve habitat, open private lands to public access, enhance fishing opportunities, and protect fish, wildlife and their habitats for future generations.
