Iowans may begin purchasing 2014 resident hunting, fishing and other licenses on Dec. 15.
The menu of license options includes the popular Outdoor Combo annual resident hunting/fishing/habitat combo license for $47; the Angler’s Special three-year fishing license for $53; and the Hunter’s Special three-year hunting license with habitat included for $86.
Also available is the Bonus Line option allowing resident and nonresident anglers to fish with one additional line in addition to the two lines allowed with the regular fishing license for $12.
Iowa hunting and fishing license fees remain unchanged for 2014. The last increase for a hunting license was in 2002, and for fishing license was 2003. Vendor fees were increased and passed on to the license buyer in 2010 to help offset the cost of developing the second generation electronic license system for Iowa.
2013 licenses are valid through Jan. 10, 2014.
