Buy a hunting, fishing license over the phone

It's quick, easy and couldn't be more convenient.


No matter where you are, if you have a phone and your credit card handy, you are within a few simple steps of owning a Utah hunting, fishing or combination license. Here are a few of the licenses and permits you can purchase over the phone:

  • Combination (hunting and fishing) license
  • Hunting license (small game)
  • Fishing license
  • Multi-year extensions for your current hunting or fishing license
  • Setline and reciprocal Flaming Gorge fishing permits
  • Furbearer license
  • Pursuit permit (cougar or bear)
  • Three-day nonresident hunting permit

It's simple and convenient to buy these items over the telephone. Just call 1-800-221-0659 and have your credit card ready. The phone line is staffed seven days a week between 7 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. MT, and is closed Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day. Note: You will also be charged a $2 transaction fee for each item you buy in addition to the fee for the license or permit.

Note: You cannot purchase or apply for hunting permits (e.g., general season elk, remaining deer, etc.) through this phone line. You can purchase licenses and permits online or in person through a license agent. You can also apply for hunting permits online. For additional help, please contact a Division office.

After your purchase, you will receive your license details, which will allow you to use the license or permit immediately. You should then receive your printed license or permit within 10 days.
