With our first ever Southwestern Indiana Bass Classic just around the corner (literally, it's this weekend!) it's got all of use here in a very outdoorsy kind of mood.  If all of this talk of outdoors has you thinking "heck maybe I'll try my hand at fishing! But how in the world do you go about getting a hunting license?"  No worries, if you live in Indiana, I've got you covered!


First you can buy your license online here.

But if that isn't your speed here's a few other ways to obtain a hunting license in Indiana:

1. In Person
Most licenses, including youth hunting licenses, are available from retailers, county clerks and most DNR properties throughout the state.

Non-resident licenses are available at the state’s Customer Service Center in Indianapolis and at most DNR properties. The DNR Customer Service Center is located in

Indiana Government Center South,
402 W. Washington St., Room W160
Indianapolis, IN 46204-2739
Customer Service Center hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., call (317) 232-4200,
Monday through Friday.

2. By Mail
Send your order with the following:

  • Name
  • Date of birth
  • Include a copy of hunter education certificate or card if born after Dec. 31, 1986
  • Complete address, city, state, zip, phone number
  • Height, weight, color of hair and color of eyes
  • Social Security number (this is mandatory)
  • Specify the licenses including the season (i.e. deer for muzzleloader)

Send check, money order or credit card number and expiration date for licenses, made payable to Indiana DNR:

DNR Customer Service Center
402 W. Washington St., Rm. W160
Indianapolis, IN 46204-2739

Please allow 2 weeks for delivery. For more information, call the Indiana DNR Customer Service Center at (317) 232-4200. All licenses issued by the DNR are  non-transferable and non-refundable.
