General license Information
Duplicate License Information
The Division of Fish and Wildlife uses the Integrated Electronic Licensing System (IELS) to issue hunting and fishing licenses and permits. Licenses are available online and at the agent locations listed below. All agents sell all hunting and fishing licenses.
When purchasing your first hunting license using the IELS
you must show an agent
a previous year's resident license (any state) or Hunter Education card. After that initial
transaction you will never have to show proof again to obtain a hunting
license. You will then also have the option of purchasing your license(s)
online (those licenses which cannot be printed at home
will be mailed and a shipping fee added).
Nonresidents can use the Nonresident
License Documentation Form to enable online license purchases without
first going to an agent.
License purchasers are required to submit the NJ Child Support Certification
each year. The certification can be obtained at an agent
or online (recommended). If you complete the certification
online, license agents will not require you to complete a paper form at their location. For more
information see the NJ
Child Support Certification Information page.
The following list of license agents is provided for informational purposes
only. It is best to contact the agent beforehand to ensure the license(s),
stamp(s) and/or permit(s) you want are available and their system is active.
