License

Purchasing On-Line

The Blackfeet Fish And Wildlife Department is encouraging sportsmen to buy their fishing and hunting licenses on-line. If you are planning on fishing during your stay at the StoneHouse, it would be wise to buy your license before you leave on your vacation. The Tribe is limiting the number of vendors allowed to sell licenses to 5 and it can be difficult to locate these vendors and secure a license when you get here. Purchasing your license on-line can be a bit confusing, so I’ve listed the steps below in an attempt to make the buying process more efficient. Please call or email me if you find any discrepancies.

STEPS

1. Go To http://blackfeetfishandwildlife.net > Home Page > scroll down to middle of Home 1. Page and in the center of the page find “Online Licensing” > Click
