Online, phone sales now available!

ANNAPOLIS - Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Secretary C. Ronald Franks today announced that for the first time in Maryland history, hunters and anglers can now purchase licenses online through DNR's website, or over the phone at 1-800-918-2870. These new services complement the existing 320 retail vendors that currently and will continue to sell licenses.

Fulfilling a commitment to deliver flexibility to core customers, DNR researched, evaluated and developed a plan that was cost-effective and reasonable to these expanded services to complement the existing retail vendors.

"This morning from the comfort of my home, I logged onto the DNR website and was able to quickly and easily purchase my 2005 hunting license," DNR Secretary C. Ronald Franks said. "The sale of licenses online in no way replaces the long tradition of purchasing a license from one of our retail vendors however, we know that more and more people are making purchases online and we are happy to provide this convenience for our customers."

For a nominal service fee ($1 plus 2.5% of the subtotal cost plus mailing, if applicable), hunters and anglers can now enjoy the ease and convenience of purchasing a license from the Internet or by telephone. The convenience fee pays for the electronic processing, fulfillment and mailing if required.
