license vendors, online at (click

The Any Season permit is valid statewide and allows the hunter
to harvest one antlered or antlerless white-tailed deer during any
season with equipment legal for that season.

Resident hunting licenses, required of anyone age 16 through 64
in addition to the deer permit, cost $20.50. Resident Any Season
White-tailed Deer permits cost $32.50. Antlerless-Only White-tailed
Deer permits, which may be purchased only after an antlered deer
permit has been purchased, cost $17.50.

White-tailed Deer permits valid during January seasons without
having first purchased an antlered deer permit.

There is no minimum age to apply for and receive a big game
permit, and youth younger than 16 may hunt without hunter
education, if supervised by an adult 18 years or older. For more
