Fish and Game Launches Improved Online Store, Offers Print-and-Go Licenses

(Juneau) — The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) recently launched a new online store where the public can purchase sport fishing and hunting licenses, commercial crewmember licenses, king salmon stamps, duck stamps, and big game tags.

With new and improved features, customers can now print their licenses at home. For those purchasing king salmon stamps and duck stamps, the validated stamp numbers will be printed directly on the license.

Another new feature is the ability for the public to purchase more than one license in one transaction. This is a great time-saving option for fishing and hunting lodges who want to purchase licenses for their clients. Fish processors and captains can purchase their licenses for all their crewmembers. Families can also buy licenses for the whole family through just one transaction.

According to Michelle Kaelke, ADF&G’s Licensing Supervisor, “Having more customers purchase their licenses online saves the department money by eliminating the need to manually data capture the paper licenses, plus it provides more accurate information as we don’t have to try to read customers’ handwritten information. Having more accurate and instant information will also help our resource managers use this license information in a more timely manner.”

Enhancements for the future include electronic licenses to be sold at local license vendors and the ability to purchase and display your license on your mobile device.
