Beginning March 1, Ohioans can purchase a 2017-2018 hunting or fishing license at wildohio.gov and at hundreds of participating agents throughout Ohio. Licenses are also available for purchase on a mobile device such as a smartphone.
Ohio’s hunters, anglers and conservationists will find a newly redesigned online purchasing system when they log in to buy licenses, permits, or other products. Licenses and permits are now grouped by category, such as hunting, fishing and trapping. New this year, anyone can access their online account at wildohio.gov and obtain a free reprint of their license or permit (this option is not available at license agents).
Ohio’s hunting and fishing license year begins March 1. A resident fishing license and hunting license cost $19 each. Prices for all fishing and hunting licenses and permits are unchanged from last year. Ohio’s 2017-2018 licenses are valid immediately upon purchase through Feb. 28, 2018. White-tailed deer and fall wild turkey hunting permits will go on sale later in 2017.
