Salem, Ore.—Outdoor enthusiasts can now purchase sport fishing and hunting licenses and tags through the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Online Sales website.
“This is a service our customers have been asking for—they can now buy license documents at their convenience,” said DeAnna Erickson, ODFW License Services Manager. “Both residents and nonresidents can use the site, which will save people a lot of time.”
While most licenses and tags are available for online purchase, license buyers have to plan ahead because many documents will be mailed. In some cases a temporary document can be printed and used until the annual document arrives. Postal delivery documents will be shipped within ten working days. A list of license documents for sale online and how they are delivered is available on the ODFW Online License Sales site. License documents for 2009 will go on sale Dec. 1, 2008.
ODFW accepts VISA and MasterCard to pay for licenses and related documents. Online license fees are the same as fees paid at an ODFW licensing agent or an ODFW office. An additional $2.00 shipping and handling fee applies to online purchases, except for instant fulfillment items. There is one fee per individual per transaction, regardless of how many items are purchased.

The 2009 Oregon Big Game Regulations and the 2009 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations are now available online and vendors and at ODFW offices throughout the state. The new regulations take effect Jan. 1, 2009.
