How to get a discount

Certain hunting and trapping approvals are sold at a reduced fee to people who have not been issued that same type of license, or a conservation patron license, or a sports license, in any of the previous 10 years. For Wisconsin residents, $5 buys you an annual license for trapping, or many hunting seasons. Nonresidents also qualify for discount rates.

Pick the licensing option that works best for you! Our system will automatically apply the discount.
