New Options For Iowa Hunting and Fishing Licenses begin Saturday December 15th

Date posted - December 12, 2012

DNR logoIowa residents may begin purchasing hunting and fishing licenses for 2013 on Saturday December 15th.

License fees remain unchanged for 2013. The last increase for a hunting license was in 2002, and for fishing license was 2003. Vendor fees were increased and passed on to the license buyer in 2010 to help offset the cost of developing the second generation electronic license system for Iowa.

2012 licenses are valid through Jan. 10, 2013. Starting Jan. 1, hunters and anglers will have new licenses from which to choose, including:

Bonus Line License – allowing resident and nonresident anglers to fish with one additional line (the regular fishing license allows two), for $12.

Outdoor Combo License –annual resident hunting/fishing/habitat combo license for $47.

Angler’s Special – a three-year fishing license (for 2013 license purchases, it will expire Jan. 10, 2016) for $53.

Hunter’s Special – a three-year hunting license with habitat included (for 2013 license purchases, it will expire Jan. 10, 2016) for $86.

These new license offerings were developed based on results from a license buyer survey that helped the DNR identify customer needs. The new licenses offer time saving convenience of purchasing a bundled license, lessens the worry about expiring every year and expands fishing opportunities with a new third line option.
