Nonresident hunting, fishing and other outdoor recreational licenses

Wisconsin offers numerous nonresident licenses. Also see, information for residents.

Note if you are a nonresident attending high school or a university in Wisconsin, or you are a nonresident who is an active member of armed forces stationed in Wisconsin, please contact your nearest DNR Service Center for information on licenses that may be available to you.

Licenses are valid from April 1st through March 31st of the following year. 2014 licenses go on sale March 4th.

ATF Regulations

Important: new Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) regulations regarding nonimmigrant visitors bringing firearms or ammunition into the United States, requires the completion of ATF Form 6 NIA(5330.3D) (Import Application). Once approved, Form 6 NIA(5330.3D) becomes the actual permit. The visiting nonimmigrant must also posses a valid hunting license issued by one of the 50 states, or an invitation to, or registration for, a valid sport shooting event. ATF Form 6 NIA(5330.3D) can take 8-12 weeks for approval so applicants should plan accordingly. An approved Form 6 NIA(5330.3D) is valid for one year from date of issuance. It cannot be reused. Forms 6 NIA(5330.3D) are available from ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives):

ATF [exit DNR], or
by calling 1-800-800-3855 [this number is for ATF only].
