Lifetime Licenses

Residents may buy hunting and fishing licenses valid for the lifetime of the license holder. A lifetime license includes all state endorsements other than the Reptile and Amphibian endorsement. Lifetime license holders are not exempt from the Federal Duck Stamp requirement. Lifetime licenses are not valid for commercial fur trapping. Lifetime tags may be obtained at retailers each year at no additional fee. The Harvest Information Program (HIP) certification and the bonus red drum tag must be added, whenever applicable.
