Hunting & Fishing Licenses/Lawbooks are now Available for 2023

Posted: December 30, 2022

MONTPELIER - Vermont 2023 hunting, trapping and fishing licenses, as well as the 2023 lawbooks for these activities, are now available on the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department’s website and wherever licenses are sold.

vt hunting information for 2023 “License sales have helped pay for some of Vermont’s greatest conservation successes,” said Fish and Wildlife Commissioner Christopher Herrick, “from managing habitat for game species, to restoring our populations of the bald eagle and common loon.”

With ice fishing opening around the state as soon as cold temperatures arrive in January, Vermonters are encouraged to pick up their 2023 licenses at the earliest convenience. Existing five-year, permanent or lifetime licenses can be updated online on Sunday. License buyers can also easily add a $15 Habitat Stamp to their purchase to further support habitat conservation in Vermont.

“In addition to updating your license, it is helpful for hunters, trappers and anglers to pick up the current 2023 lawbooks,” added Herrick. “Hunters and trappers will find important details on several new laws passed in 2022, and anglers can revisit the simplified fishing regulations introduced last year.”

Print copies of the 2023 Hunting & Trapping Lawbook and the 2023 Fishing Lawbook are available from license agents statewide. The department’s website has links to online versions, as well.
