License Requirements

Spring Light Goose Season (Conservation Order)

NOTE: A federal migratory bird stamp (duck stamp) is not required for spring season.

Residents must possess the following licenses:

  • Harvest Information Program registration
  • Fishing, Hunting, and Furbearer Certificate
  • Small Game License (Not required of residents under age 16) and General Game and Habitat LicenseorCombination License (includes Small Game, General Game and Habitat, Furbearer, and Fishing licenses)
  • Federal migratory bird stamp (duck stamp) – required of all hunters 16 years of age and older.

Nonresidents must possess the following licenses:

  • Harvest Information Program registration
  • Nonresident Fishing, Hunting, Furbearer Certificate
  • General Game and Habitat License
  • Federal migratory bird stamp (duck stamp) – required of all hunters 16 years of age and older.
  • Nonresident waterfowl license – two types are available:
    • A statewide license, good for two 7-day periods or one 14-day period, or
    • A zone-restricted license that requires the nonresident to select hunting zones (see **Nonresident Waterfowl Hunting Zones (pdf) below) according to the following restrictions:
      • A nonresident must select Zone 1 or Zone 2 for one seven-day period and Zone 3 for the other seven-day period, or
      • Zone 3 for the full 14 days or two seven-day periods, or
      • Zones 1 and 3 concurrently for the same 7-day period or zones 2 and 3 concurrently for the same 7-day period. This option effectively reduces the license to seven days only, as the two 7-day periods are run at the same time.
  • Nonresident Youth Hunting Licenses – A nonresident under age 16 need only purchase a North Dakota resident fishing, hunting and furbearer certificate and a North Dakota resident general game and habitat license to hunt small game and waterfowl, except swans and wild turkeys; provided that the nonresident’s state of residence, or province or territory of Canada, provides a reciprocal licensing agreement for North Dakota residents who are also under age 16. (Currently states of AL, AR, CO, CT, ID, KY, LA, MI, MN, MO, MS, NE, NJ, NY, OH, SC, TN, TX, WA and WI qualify.) To be eligible, a nonresident youth must not turn 16 before September 1 of the year for which the license is issued, and must possess a certificate of completion for a certified hunter education course. The nonresident youth may only hunt under the supervision of an adult family member or legal guardian who is licensed to hunt small game or waterfowl in this state and is subject to the same regulations as that youth’s adult family member or legal guardian. Youth from states that do not qualify for reciprocity must obtain required adult nonresident licenses.
