ALBERT LEA, MN — Things just got a lot easier for anglers and hunters in Minnesota.
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is now offering a mobile licensing page to purchase select fishing and hunting licenses from your smart phone.
Those who purchase off the site will receive a text message or e-mail that serves as proof of a valid fish or game license.
With the new technology, DNR leaders tell us they want to make things easy as possible.
“We want to keep up with that and more people are going the online stuff,” DNR Conservation Officer Luke Belgard said. “So, we want to be able to keep up too and keep things as convenient as possible for people who want to be out there doing that stuff.”
More than 1,000 sales of electronic licenses have been logged since the mobile site’s soft launch in late June.
