According to the U.S. Fish And Wildlife Service, a total of 38,854,259 Hunting Licenses, Tags, Permits & Stamps were registered in 2020! ****It's clear that as more people move outdoors and pick up new hobbies, and new regulations are implemented, hunting licenses will increase in demand.
<aside> 💡 In fact, every state in the US requires a hunting license.
Hunting licenses are legal requirements at the state level that not only help prevent illegal hunting and promote wildlife sustainability, but they also ensure that everyone gets the necessary training to hunt safely. In the U.S., hunting without a license can cost you thousands in fines and jail time.
The types of licenses offered vary by state. Here are some categories to consider:
Most people with a valid, government-issued ID above the age of 16 can obtain a hunting license (however, many states also allow junior hunters who can be as young as 12). You will need to provide a valid government-issued ID number or SSN. Senior citizens, juniors, and veterans get reduced fees.
