Hunting gear...check. Fishing gear...check. Trapping equipment...check. Computer modem...check. Now the first step in getting ready for that hunting, fishing or trapping excursion is going online to get your new hunting, fishing or trapping license.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources and accessIndiana, the state?s official Web site, have teamed up to offer all Indiana resident and non-resident hunting, trapping and fishing licenses online. Trout/salmon, waterfowl and game bird stamps are also available on DNR?s Web site.

No longer will a hunter or angler need to postpone or delay his trip into the Indiana wilds. In less time than it takes to drive to the store, the license can be in hand and ready to be used.

"It was easy. It took me just five minutes to purchase my 2002 fishing license online," said John Goss, director of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. "This new online service will ensure that hunters, trappers and anglers can get the licenses they want with no fuss or bother. The licenses are now available anytime?at the buyer's convenience."

"Online licensing is one more way accessIndiana is providing ease and convenience to Hoosiers and non-residents alike," said Laura Larimer, Indiana's chief information officer. "We're pleased to add yet another service to the growing number of interactive services available on the state's Web site."

The steps are simple. Users need only provide some basic personal information, such as name, address and date-of-birth, and then select which licenses to purchase. In addition to the standard license fee, there is a convenience charge of $1.00 for each license plus a small processing fee.
