First-time buyers get a price break on fishing and hunting fun

Certain hunting, trapping and fishing approvals are sold at a reduced fee to people who have not been issued that same type of license, or a conservation patron license, or a sports license, in any of the previous 10 years. For Wisconsin residents, $5 buys you an annual license for fishing, trapping, or many hunting seasons. Nonresidents also qualify for discount rates. See the price list for first-time buyers by clicking the appropriate link in "related links" to the right.

Three convenient ways to buy

Whether you're a first-time buyer or are returning to the field for the first time in 10 years, we've got several easy ways to buy your license and get your ticket to fun. Regardless of how you buy your license, our system will automatically apply the discount to whatever license you are buying. So pick the licensing option that works best for you! Choose from the options in the upper-right of this page.

Reward your recruiter

Recognize that special person who introduced you to the sport. Let us know and we'll reward him or her with points toward a discounted license the next year. Wisconsin residents who have been designated as a recruiter three or more times within one license year are eligible for a discount on the license of their choice the next year. Give us a call at 1-888-936-7463 and be ready to give your customer number and your recruiter's customer number. Recruiter points are available only for Wisconsin residents. Give credit where credit is due!
