|State anglers, hunters need new licenses|
April 1 marked the start of the new license year for all Department of Natural Resources (DNR) fishing and hunting licenses.
“That means the license purchased in 2012 has now expired and if you plan to fish and hunt again this year, you can buy whatever license you need for the 2013-2014 seasons,” said Joanne M. Haas, DNR Bureau of Law Enforcement.The old licenses ran through March 31, 2013, and the new licenses are now valid through March 31, 2014.
“You may purchase your license at any of the more than 1,300 license agents statewide or through the DNR Online License Center at dnr.wi.gov,” said Haas.
Multi-season hunters and anglers might consider purchasing the Conservation Patron license, according to Haas.
“For $165, you can fish in all Wisconsin waters, hunt deer, small game, waterfowl and upland game birds,” said Haas.
An annual state park admission sticker, access to all state trails and a subscription to Wisconsin Natural Resources magazine are included with the Conservation Patron license.
Junior ($75), nonresident ($600) and nonresident junior ($77) Conservation Patron licenses also are available.
All license buyers are reminded to review the home address shown on the license purchased from agents.
“If it is not correct, the agent can change it on the terminal,” said Haas. “Or, the license holder may make the correction through the Online License Center or DNR Call Center at 1-888-936-7463.”
The address on the license must be correct to ensure the holder receives notification if they are a permit winner in any of the drawings.
