Use Caution When Purchasing Virginia Hunting & Fishing Licenses Online
According to a press release from the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources, the Department is urging all citizens who want to purchase a fishing or hunting license to only go through official Department of Wildlife Resources websites.
Over the last few years, the Department has noticed multiple online sites claiming to sell DWR fishing and hunting licenses. These sites will end up taking your money and sending you a fraudulent license or no license at all. DWR has taken appropriate actions against these companies and will continue to do so as they come to their attention. DWR appreciates the public’s help in letting them know that these organizations are out there.
The following websites are not affiliated in any way with the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources:
Again, those websites are not affiliated with the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources.
There are only two official websites where Virginia 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.
