Hunting licenses have several important purposes: public safety, regulation and conservation of wild animals, state revenue, and containing the transmission of animal-borne diseases. A hunting license allows you to purchase hunting tags and enter draws in your state.
In most cases, you are required to obtain a hunting license from the state where the hunt occurs. You must comply with the state wildlife department requirements associated with the license. Hunting licenses can be purchased online or at many retail outlets that deal in hunting and fishing equipment.
