Hunting and Fishing Licenses 
Ensure that your friends, children, and grandchildren have years of access to hunting and fishing in Ohio with multiyear and lifetime hunting and fishing licenses — unique gifts that will be appreciated for years to come. 
Ohio resident license buyers can choose from 3-year, 5-year, 10-year, and lifetime hunting or fishing licenses. All funds generated from the sale of multiyear and lifetime licenses are deposited into the Wildlife Fund, where they will be used to protect and enhance Ohio’s wildlife populations.  
Licenses can be purchased online at Ohio’s Wildlife Licensing System, with the Hunt Fish OH mobile app, and at hundreds of participating agents throughout the state. 
Wild Ohio Magazine 
The Wild Ohio Magazine provides readers a glimpse into Ohio’s wildlife and conservation activities. The magazine is delivered six times each year, including a calendar edition. The cost is $5 per year for individuals who purchase at a license vendor, with the HuntFish OH mobile app, or online through the Ohio’s Wildlife Licensing System.  
Legacy Stamps  
Buying and giving an Ohio Wildlife Legacy Stamp allows wildlife enthusiasts the opportunity to directly impact the future of Ohio’s native wildlife. The stamp proceeds go to the Endangered Species and Wildlife Diversity Fund and support: habitat restoration; land purchases and conservation easements; endangered and threatened native species; educational products for students and wildlife enthusiasts; and wildlife and habitat research projects. The individual purchasing an Ohio Wildlife Legacy Stamp for $15 will receive a collectible stamp, window cling and commemorative card, and the stamps can be purchased with the HuntFish Oh mobile app or through Ohio’s Wildlife Licensing System. Showing your Ohio Wildlife Legacy Stamp at eight state park lodges can earn a 25% discount on lodge rooms for weekday stays, and the stamp holder must be present to receive this coupon.
