New online system gives option to carry license on your smart phone.
Indiana hunters will now have a more convenient method to get their hunting and fishing licenses as the DNR announces a new online system for purchasing them.
The Indiana DNR rolled out the new system on INHuntFish.com earlier this week. You will now be able to purchase hunting fishing and trapping licenses and manage the ones you have through their new system. Outdoorsmen and women have to create an online account for each hunter and fisherman 18 and older, but there are a few benefits to the new system.
For instance, hunters and fisherman will now have the option to save their license to their smartphone, eliminating the need for a printed copy. You can also reprint your license for free in the event you lose it. Even though it's possible to go somewhat paperless now with licenses, you still need to print a temporary transport tag off the website if hunting deer or turkeys.
Non-residents can also use the system to purchase hunting or fishing licenses in advance of a trip to the Hoosier state.
The new system should come in handy should you forget to purchase a license and it's too late for stores to be open before opening day. There is a small access fee of $2 for each license to help cover the costs of the system.
