Active Duty Military

Any active full-time member of the U.S. armed forces may purchase a Connecticut hunting, fishing or trapping license for the same fees as a resident. Proof of full-time membership during the calendar year must be carried while using the license.

Disabled Veterans

Any resident with the loss of a limb or the loss of the use of a limb and a doctor’s certificate may be issued a free license. Qualified nonresidents who are residents of states which allow CT residents the same privileges are also eligible.

Special Notes:

First Time Customers: 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 fishing and hunting licenses, permits and tags. Each time you purchase a new license or permit, you will use this number to login. You will also use this number when you purchase licenses or permits at participating town clerks, sporting goods stores and DEEP offices.

Hunting & Trapping Licenses: 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, your hunting and trapping license eligibility may already exist in the online licensing database. If when logging on, you are not found in our computerized records, you will not be able to buy hunting or trapping licenses online. You will have to go to a participating town clerk, sporting goods store or a DEEP office to show proof of your eligibility to buy hunting and/or trapping licenses.

Fishing Licenses: If you are a new customer, you will need a valid driver’s license number or social security number to register for a Connecticut Conservation ID.
