Deer licenses for the 2016-17 deer seasons are now available for purchase.
The new online license system requires users to set up an account to purchase licenses. Allow additional time to set up your account and enter your information if you haven’t done so already.
All adults must set up an account to purchase a license in their own name. Youth licenses can be purchased from an adult’s account as an “association.” You must be at least 13 to create your own account.
If you were born after Dec. 31, 1986, be sure to enter your hunter education number in the profile page in your online account. The number is required to purchase a standard deer hunting license. You can find your hunter education number online.
A crossbow license is required to hunt with a crossbow during the archery season. The deer license bundle allows you to take three antlerless deer or two antlerless and one antlered deer in the archery, firearm, muzzleloader, and special antlerless seasons combined using legal equipment, including crossbows.
State offices will be closed on Friday, Nov.11 for the Veteran’s Day holiday, so buy your license now. Firearms season runs from Nov. 12-27.
