Has anyone heard or read When 2016 hunting licenses go on sale? I know it'll be early in June but wondered if anyone has beard a date. Last year we were on an island in Canada on a walleye fishing trip. The wife was not very happy when she was asked to go buy our licenses and , more importantly, our DMAPS while we were away. Hoping we might avoid that this year.

Thanks, June 8 was the date last year but was looking for an exact date for this year (if it's been determined yet). There are a few of us that go on an annual fishing trip about that time and the same group of friends all like to obtain DMAPs for an area that sells out quickly. Did a google search and searched the PGC website but nothing as of yet for 2016. We leave on the 9th this year and after the 10th, there is no way we can do anything online so we would need to make an arrangement for someone back home to get them for us. Just trying to get ahead of it and thought someone here might've seen or heard a date.

Keep checking the news releases on the game commission website as the date has not been announced yet.

Does anyone know if a family member (if equipped with my military documentation and license number) is able to purchase my license and doe tags for me at the court house?

I don't believe they can. I think the only instance of buying a license for another person is a parent buying for a junior hunter.

I tried to go and buy a lifetime license for my dad as a birthday present and they wouldn't let me. I had his prior license, CID number and everything and they would not permit me to do it.
I asked why I couldn't buy the hunting license when I COULD buy the fishing license and was told, "You can't kill someone with a fishing pole in your hand."

I would just have someone order it online for you. If they have all your info, they can do it and it will be mailed to your address.

I am looking forward to purchasing my license, migratory bird, archery, bear and DMAP tag on June 20th.
I guess we still need to use the mail in system to apply for doe.

Used it last year and it worked well for me.

I would say yes. I done it once and had no issues but they went to the PGC office for the license and than to the court house for the doe tag. You will be issued a doe tag even if all allocations are gone. There is always one for active duty military

It still says that you or your AGENT can do it in person at the treasures office OR once you have your license you can mail it in with all documentation to the treasures office.

If you mail it in DO NOT USE THE PINK ENVELOPE, USE A PLAIN ENVELOPE. Than mark it ARMED FORCES ANTLERLESS APPLICATION.
If you do the mail route you need to send a self addressed stamped envelope.

You can do this at any time during the year.

I bet they are waiting on the waterfowl regs. They want them in the book this year.

Regular License,archery, ML, DMAP, no sweat. Can do that for anyone, at any issuing agent or online with the proper info. My wife did it for me and a few buddies when we were on our Canadian fishing trip last year when licenses first went on sale. Doe licenses may be another story. I am close to a courthouse with a very helpful treasurers office and will try to make time to stop and ask them your question.

Thanks a lot for the info. I knew the license purchase was allowed, but I wasn't sure about the doe tags. I will not be able to make it home before the season starts to buy my tags. Thanks again.
