Ordering Supplies

Please keep an inventory of all licensing supplies on hand. You should always have two to four weeks of supplies on hand. However, please do not keep on hand more than you can use during your selling season. If your supply runs low, submit a Request of Additional Supplies form (11-522), page 11, to the Juneau licensing office. You can also fax your order to (907) 465-2440. Indicate the quantity of each item you are requesting.

Do not wait until you are completely out of something to order more!

If an emergency shortage does occur, please call our office at (907) 465-2376 or you can fax your order to (907) 465-2440. We can Express Mail supplies to you. However, you will be responsible for the express expense.

Providing your account is current and your reports are up-to-date, your request for supplies will be filled and shipped within one (1) business day.

It is especially important to check your license supplies at least two weeks in advance of holidays, scheduled fisheries/wildlife openings, and derbies to insure you have an adequate supply of stock!
