Hunting Licenses and Permits

At this time, DEEP offices are closed to the public. Sportsmen and women are able to purchase licenses, permits, and stamps online 24/7 through Connecticut's Online Sportsmen Licensing System. If you do not have a way to print your license after purchase, you can display your license on a mobile device (be sure to have it with you while out in the field). Licenses and permits can also be purchased directly from many town clerks and retail agents

Changes are coming to 2021 HIP permits purchased through third-party license vendors. Learn how the changes affect you. There are no changes if you purchase your HIP permit through DEEP's Online Licensing System
