The Department of Wildlife Resources (DWR) is urging all residents looking to purchase a hunting or fishing license to only go through official DWR websites.
Over the last few years, the department has noticed multiple online sites claiming to sell DWR fishing and hunting licenses. These sites allegedly end up taking money for a fraudulent license, or worse, no license at all.
The DWR has taken appropriate actions against these companies and will continue to do so as they come to their attention. The department appreciates the public’s help in letting them know that these organizations are out there.
The websites listed below are not affiliated in any way with the department:
To purchase a license, there are only two official websites where fishing and hunting licenses can be purchased, gooutdoorsvirginia.com and dwr.virginia.gov. Licenses can also be purchased on the Go Outdoors Virginia mobile app or at a local vendor.
If you need more information, call the DWR at (804) 367-1000, or for general questions, email email@example.com.
