Hunt/Fish License number (year 2000 or later); a Driver’s License number; or a N.H. Hunter/Bow Education Certificate number (year 2000 or later).  (Note: It may take up to a month after taking our hunter ed. course before the information is on file). 

If a record is not found, click on ‘Add A New Customer’.  When entering your information, enter your legal name as it appears on your driver's license. 

Please note
:  In order to purchase a hunting or archery license through our online system or Wal-Mart, you must have held a hunting or archery license or taken hunter or bow education, in New Hampshire since the year 2000.  This allows NHFG to confirm that the applicant meets the hunter education requirements.  Otherwise, you will need to purchase your license at a traditional license agent, and present your applicable hunting proof (from any year, any state). 

Note: Hunting and fishing licenses are legal documents intended to be purchased by the licensee.
  Refunds will not be granted for duplicate or incorrect purchases.  The online system is NOT checking for duplicate purchases; that is the applicant’s responsibility.

Only one Moose Lottery Application shall be entered; Moose Lottery monies are not refundable.
  • A general fishing, hunting or archery license is required for those 16 years of age and over. 

    Minors:  Minors under 16 years of age are required to purchase the following special licenses: Special Deer Archery, Turkey, Bear, and Unit L & M Special Deer Tags.  Non-resident minors are also required to purchase a Muzzleloader license.  Minors are not required to pay a Wildlife Habitat Fee or file a Harvest Information (H.I.P.) Survey. 

    When purchasing minors’ licenses:  Do a customer search first by entering their Last Name, DOB and: HE or BS certificate number if they have one, or previous NH license; or the parent or guardian's driver’s license number.  If no record is found, click on 'Add A New Customer' to enter their information.  The license must be issued under the minor’s legal name.
    For minors under 18 years of age who DO NOT hold a valid driver's license or state issued non-driver's photo ID, the parent or legal guardian's driver's license number must be entered. 
    On Moose Lottery Applications, ALL applicants must provide their OWN driver's license number or state issued non-driver's photo ID number. 

    Permanent License Holders:  Permanent licenses such as Lifetime, Milestone, Disabled Vet, and Paraplegic are not available online.  Any secondary licenses (those not covered by the permanent license) may be purchased online. 

    Resident of NH Landowners:  Resident landowners hunting on their own land do not need to purchase the basic firearm license (they cannot hunt off their property without a license).  However, they must purchase any other licenses such as archery, muzzleloader, turkey, etc.  Resident landowner secondary licenses are only available at New Hampshire Fish and Game headquarters in Concord. 


A $2.75 internet transaction fee and 2.5 % credit card fee will be charged for each purchase, in addition to the license cost.  We accept Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. 

Refunds:  Please be aware, there is no provision within state law that provides the Fish and Game Department with the authority to refund monies.  It is the Department's policy not to issue refunds for applicant errors.  For system errors, please contact the Department for review and consideration.  Any amount refunded will be less: $1 per license type, 2.5% credit card fee, and $2.75 transaction fee.  Moose Lottery monies are NOT refundable.

Note:  The license you print is your official license and must be on your person whenever you go fishing/hunting.   In order for a license to be valid, it must be printed out and signed by the applicant.
