First-time buyer & Recruiter Licenses

Wisconsin offers numerous resident licenses; and now we are offering a First-time buyer License.

This First-time buyer license is a reduced rate license that is offered to customers as a means to introduce them to the sport of hunting or fishing. It is also available for any customer who has not purchased a license in any of the last 10 years, more information. If you can purchase a first time buyer license, you can reward your recruiter who can also qualify for a discounted license, find out more on Recruiter licenses.

Note: Under state law, 10- and 11-year-olds will not qualify for the first-time buyers' discount but will need to participate in a mentored hunt.
