Welcome to Connecticut’s Online Sportsmen Licensing System
February 25, 2008
From this site, you can purchase Connecticut hunting, trapping and fishing licenses, as well as all required deer, turkey, and migratory bird permits and stamps. For more information about how to use this site, visit the Frequently Asked Questions page.To buy licenses and permits online, you will have to register for a Connecticut Conservation ID. A Connecticut Conservation ID is a unique number that is assigned to you for the online purchase of all hunting and fishing licenses, permits and tags. In the future, you will also use this number when you purchase licenses or permits at town clerks and sporting goods stores.
For calendar year 2008, PERMITS and TAGS will be MAILED to you after purchasing them online. As the online Sportsmens System is updated, you will be able to print permits and tags on your printer. Please check the DEP website for information detailing system updates. If you want to apply for the 2008 Deer Lottery, do that directly on the DEP website at www.ct.gov/dep/hunting.
If you want to buy a license or permit that gives you hunting or trapping privileges, you need a way to verify that you have met Connecticut’s hunter and trapper education requirements. If you have taken a Connecticut hunting/trapping safety course or if you have purchased a deer, turkey or bowhunting permit within the last year, your hunting and trapping license eligibility MAY already exist in the online licensing database. Please select START to begin.
