DEEP: Hunting Licenses and Permits

Hunting Licenses and Permits

ATTENTION Hunters, Anglers, and Hikers: Residents, especially those in the southeastern part of the state from the lower Connecticut River Valley to the Rhode Island border, are advised to protect themselves and their children by taking personal precautions to prevent mosquito bites until the first hard frost of the fall. Consideration should also be given to minimizing outdoor activity from dusk to dawn, when mosquitoes are most active. The Department of Public Health announced on Oct. 1, 2019, that a third person has died this year in CT from Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) and a fourth person remains hospitalized due to EEE (Press release with more details). Weekly surveillance updates of mosquito and virus activity, precautionary and control methods, and the current list of certified applicators can be found at

Licenses to fish, hunt, and trap in Connecticut can be purchased online by going to Connecticut's Online Sportsmen Licensing System. In addition to licenses, you can also purchase the special permits and stamps needed to hunt species like deer, resident game birds, and migratory birds.

Licenses and permits can also be purchased directly from many town clerks and retail agents (pdf).
