If that bare spot on your mantle is in need of a trophy buck, this guide will get you on your way by helping you get the proper permits.

Step 1: Determine type of license
Determine what type of license you need. Factors to consider include your age, experience, and the type of wildlife you intend to hunt.

Tip
Check online with your state’s Department of Natural Resources or Wildlife Department for restrictions and qualifications.

Step 2: Visit a location
Go to an authorized vendor, such as an outdoor supplies store, big box store, or a firearm supply store. You can also visit your state’s Department of Natural Resources or Wildlife Department office to get your license.

Step 3: Bring your ID
Bring your state identification card or your driver’s license when you purchase a hunting permit in person. Most states allow persons under 17-years old to get a license with an ID, but requirements vary by region.

Step 4: Use a previous permit
Use a previous year’s permit to get a new license if you forgot your ID, don’t have one, or would just like to renew without any changes.

Tip
Some states offer a lifetime pass to eliminate the hassle of renewing each year.

Step 5: Purchase online
Purchase your hunting license online through your state’s website using a credit card if you can’t go in person.

Tip
Most states will e-mail your license, which you can print, but some will mail it. Plan ahead in you’re in a rush.

Step 6: Plan for cost
Plan to spend between $10 and $150 per permit depending on the season, weapon, and type of game. Happy hunting!

Did You Know?
The Quagga was a half horse, half Zebra subspecies that was hunted to extinction in Africa in the 1870s.

    that last fact is the reason why hunting is so regulated, if it wasn’t, half the country would have extinct bears n elk

    I studied on DNR’s websight and went to a field day, where I shot guns and bows and then took a test and got my certification so now I can buy a license. live in Michigan

    How to breath.
    You will need ; oxygen, lungs, mouth.
    Did you know ; you’re already doing it?

  13. scott mitchell on April 4, 2020 at 5:12 pm

    for more food. you can pay a buck for a mc chicken at mc donalds. or have a box of ammo and a rifle. you can spend like 25 bucks for 550 bullets… thats 550 meals (if you can shoot) for 25 bucks….compared to 25 mc chickens.

    think about it.

  14. I'm A Centrist on April 4, 2020 at 5:13 pm

    Next in HowCast:How to Kill someone: You will need a Ski mask, Knife or gun. first, go up to a person with a kinife and stabs him in the stomach and disbowel him. with a gun, aim for his or her head and shoot. then, hide the body.

  37. Dec Mahoney on April 4, 2020 at 5:39 pm

    @Madzho89
    I understand what you mean. Just that I, myself believe in Survival of the fittest. By danger I mean, attacks by harmful animals. Not that they happen everyday but just in case. And I don’t believe in hunting regular animals. Just vermin like pigeons.

    howcast’s next video how to go to school

  39. 2bdefacto on April 4, 2020 at 5:41 pm

    OK ilikefire0, we don’t agree on hunting, let’s put that aside. From your tone I believe you are a Trump supporter. I AM TOO! I attended 3 of his rallies and strongly believe what he says. Both of us (you and me) are supporters of of the NRA. In these times white people and all conservatives and patriots of all colors need to stick together. Hunting is your thing I am sorry it is not mine. And yes I did proudly serve in the Armed Forces for 6 years People like us, need to realize we both have a common enemy, LIBERALS AND THE LEFT WING LIBERAL OWNED AND CONTROLLED MEDIA The socialist media is our main enemy. and remember that; " liberalism is a mental disorder" and finally, I would like to change my original statement to; " I WISH THEY WOULD GIVE A HUNTING LICENSE TO HUNT LIBERALS".
