So far in 2014, conservation-minded individuals have continued to show a deep commitment to protecting Wisconsin’s natural resources. Through Aug. 1, approximately 44,611 Conservation Patron licenses had been sold (compared to 43,930 through Aug. 1, 2013).
Revenue from Conservation Patron license sales is distributed among the fishing, wildlife and trapping programs and also helps fund fish and wildlife habitat improvement programs.
The department encourages longtime license buyers in Wisconsin to consider purchasing a Conservation Patron license. A Conservation Patron license gives the license holder all the basic fishing and hunting privileges at a great price – $165 for Wisconsin residents and $75 for Wisconsin residents below age 18. Hunting and fishing licenses can be purchased through the Online Licensing Center on the DNR website, at all authorized license agents, at DNR Service Centers, or by calling toll-free 877.LICENSE (877.945.4236).
