Replacement Licences

If a hunting licence has been lost, stolen or damaged, you must get a replacement licence before you continue hunting.

Big Game

You may get a replacement big game licence/tags from any Department of Justice - Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Office or the Wildlife Division. Please return any part of the original licence or tags still in your possession. An affidavit, describing the circumstances of the loss, must be completed and signed by a Justice of the Peace, Commissioner of Oaths, Notary Public, etc... A $2.00 fee will be charged for a replacement big game licence.

Small Game

Replacement small game licences are available from the vendor where you purchased your original licence. An affidavit, describing the circumstances of the loss, must be completed and signed by a Justice of the Peace, Commissioner of Oaths, Notary Public, etc... When you purchase a Small Game Licence, keep the return in a safe place separate from the licence. Record the date of purchase, licence number and the vendor's name and address. If you lose your licence bring the return or the information you recorded to the vendor along with a completed affidavit where a replacement will be issued. There is no fee for a replacement small game licence.
