First-time buyers get a price break on hunting fun

Hunters with their dogs

Get a major price break on your hunting or trapping license if you haven't purchased that type of license or haven't purchased a license that includes that privilege in any of the last 10 years. Discounted fees are available for residents and nonresidents alike and are automatically applied when you buy a license. Try it -- you'll like it!

How to get a discount

Certain hunting and trapping 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 trapping, or many hunting seasons. Nonresidents also qualify for discount rates.

Pick the licensing option that works best for you! Our system will automatically apply the discount.
