Fishing and hunting licenses go on sale Dec. 1
Give one as a holiday gift
November 23, 2009


SALEM, Ore. — Hunting and fishing licenses for 2010 go on sale Dec. 1— just in time for holiday gift giving. They are sold on the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife website, at ODFW license agents and at ODFW offices that sell licenses.

A new Juvenile Resident Sports Pac makes a great gift and allows 12 to 17 year olds to fish, hunt, crab and clam all year for only $55. The package includes one of each of the following: Combination angling/hunting/shellfish license; combined angling harvest tag; upland game bird and Oregon waterfowl validation; and tags (general or controlled) for buck deer, elk, bear, cougar and spring turkey.

And, don’t forget the grown-ups on your list. Adult anglers and hunters reap the benefits of reduced pricing in a Sports Pac for $164.75. Senior citizens 70 and over who have been Oregon residents for five years get a fishing license for $15 and a hunting license for $13.75. Raffle tickets start at $4.50 and make a great gift for any hunter who wants an additional chance to hunt big game during an extended season and in an expanded hunt area.

Gift giving

To purchase a license as a gift, tell the sales clerk you'd like to make a gift purchase and be prepared to give the hunter’s or angler’s full name and date of birth (month, day, year). If the person has previously had a license, make sure you have their ODFW hunter/angler ID number, which is found at the top of the license. If you are purchasing a license for someone who has never had a license, you will have to provide their social security number in compliance with Federal and State law.

Whether you are buying your own license or buying one as a gift, an Oregon hunting or fishing license is a great purchase at any time. Not only does it give you, your family and friends the opportunity to recreate outdoors all year, ODFW staff work hard to provide you with the information you need to make the most of your experience. Visit the ODFW website for tips, techniques, places to go and recreational forecasts.

New 2010 ODFW sport license and tag fees are in effect for 2010 licenses. To see the new fees, visit ODFW’s website (PDF).
