State DNR Warning Of Hunting And Fishing License Scams

(Madison) The state’s Department of Natural Resources is warning Wisconsin sportsmen and women about online hunting and fishing license scams. Department officials are aware of at least two websites appearing to offer fishing or hunting licenses. But after you pay a fee you only receive information on how to apply for a license. There are three legitimate ways to get a fishing license; through a DNR Service Center, an independent license sales agent approved by the DNR or through the GoWild website.
