The state of Wisconsin is offering a $5 first-time buyer’s license for residents to join in hunting, fishing and trapping traditions in the Badger State.

Under a new law, certain hunting, trapping and fishing approvals are sold at a reduced fee to people who have not been issued that type of license, or a conservation patron license, or a sports license, in any of the previous 10 years, according to Penny Kanable of the Department of Natural Resources' licensing division.

For Wisconsin residents, $5 will buy an annual license for fishing or trapping, or many other hunting seasons. Nonresidents also get a price break too, Kanable said. Wisconsin residents who have been designated as a recruiter three or more times within one license year are eligible for discount on the license of their choice the next year, Kanable said.

To recognize that person, first-time buyers can call 1-888-WDNR Info (1-888-936-7463), and give their customer number and the recruiter’s customer number.
