 Once you have completed the online course and field examination you can get your hunters licence and tag’s for game.

The process for getting tags is simple – just go to any vendor that sells hunting licences. Big box stores like Walmart sell them as well as other nationally known business.  Also when making your purchase make sure to look for the package deal- usually this includes game such as Deer tag, elk tag, bear tag, and small game tag. The person that sold me my deer tag did not tell me I could get a 45.00 discount on my small game tag if I purchased it at the same time…. so YOU need to ask THEM to look for package deals, like I stated before. Deer, elk, bear, small game. this will minimize your costs and give you more opportunity to hunt other game.
