Go hunting and fishing in Wisconsin on the cheap
Non-resident students enrolled full-time and in residence at any public or private Wisconsin college, technical college, or university offering an associate or bachelor’s degree can hunt and fish in Wisconsin for what the residents pay.
“There is no reason why college students have to wait for a trip home to enjoy the outdoors,” says Keith Warnke, DNR shooting and hunting sports coordinator. “Wisconsin’s hunting and fishing opportunities are abundant – and you’re already here. Plus, it’s affordable on a tight student budget.”
Here’s what enrolled non-resident students pay for the licenses: Resident Gun Deer – $24; Resident Archery – $24; Resident Small Game – $18; Resident Fishing – $20; Resident Sports (fishing, small game, and gun deer) – $60.
Licenses can be purchased through the Online Licensing Center on the DNR website, at all authorized license agents, at DNR Service Centers (Hours for service centers vary; check the DNR website for service center days and hours of operation; DNR Service Centers are not open on Saturdays), or by calling toll-free 1-877-LICENSE (1-877-945-4236).
Foreign citizens residing in the state and attending a Wisconsin high school or a university agricultural short course are also eligible for gun deer, archery, small game, fishing and sports licenses at resident prices.
Visit the DNR website at dnr.wi.gov and search keywords “public lands” to find places throughout Wisconsin to hunt, fish, hike, and explore.
