By the time you’re in high school, it’s likely that you’ve heard the phrase, “You’re a hunter if you can shoot a deer.”
You’ve probably heard it many times before.
Nowadays, hunters have even more license options to choose from, and they’re being asked to fill out forms more frequently.
While hunting licenses have been on the decline for decades, the federal government has continued to renew them.
Many states and counties have adopted laws to expand hunting opportunities, as has the federal Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS).
The current deer season is also the first in three decades to open to the public.
But in the past, people didn’t have to get their licenses if they hunted with someone else.
Today, most hunters must go through the licensing process in person to prove their skill.
They need to show proof of having the right to hunt with someone other than their family or immediate friends, including someone who’s a licensed hunter, and proof that they’ve been to a licensed hunting camp.
It’s a long process.
It can take at least two weeks, and sometimes longer.
The process involves a federal background check, an interview with a local law enforcement agency and an in-person examination.
After an interview, the applicant is required to sign a statement of intent and submit their application to the federal agency.
The FWS also has a process for certifying a hunter’s hunting skills.
The certifying agency then approves the applicant’s hunter status and license.
When you get your license, you’ll need to carry a hunting rifle and a deer license.
A deer license costs $100 and can be obtained at any gun shop.
A hunting license costs around $200, and it can be purchased at gun shops and sporting goods stores.
In the past 10 years, hunters can also hunt with another person in their group.
It varies by state.
If you hunt with others, your licenses will be issued to them in the same manner.
Hunting is legal in Montana, Alaska, Wyoming and the District of Columbia.
You can also go deer hunting in Washington, D.C. or in other states.
You may also be able to hunt deer in the Northwest Territories.
To find out if hunting is legal or not, check out the FWS website.
