MADISON - In its fourth year, the first-time buyer license continues to provide an opportunity to explore Wisconsin's outdoors at a reduced price.

Successful first-time deer hunters are also reminded to fill out a first deer certificate to commemorate their hunt. A printable certificate will be sent to the email address provided.

Certain resident hunting, trapping, and fishing licenses are available for as little as $5 for those who have never purchased that same type of license or have not purchased a Wisconsin license authorizing that activity in any of the prior ten years. Certain nonresident licenses are also discounted for first-time buyers.

Hunting and fishing licenses can be purchased through the Online Licensing Center on the DNR website and at license sales locations.

DNR Customer and Outreach Services staff is available to assist the public online and via phone from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week. Customers may reach customer service at 1-888-WDNR INFo (1-888-936-7463) or by e-mail at csweb@wisconsin.gov. An online chat link is also available.

For more information regarding the first-time license buyer program and first deer certificate, visit dnr.wi.gov and search keywords "first time buyer" and "first deer certificate."
