SALEM, Ore. — It’s now much easier for hunters and anglers to buy licenses and tags for other family members and friends, thanks to a new group purchase feature on ODFW’s licensing system.
Any ODFW customer with an online account will be able to add other customers to their purchase group and buy items on their behalf. Customers will need the ODFW ID number of anyone they want to add to their group.

“Fishing and hunting is all about getting outdoors with friends and family,” said Linda Lytle, ODFW license sales manager. “This new feature will make it fast and easy to buy licenses and tags for them, too.”
This new feature is available to hunters and anglers with an online account. To open an online account, visit https://odfw.huntfishoregon.com/login Remember to use the Verify/Look up feature if you have purchased an annual license since 2016 or have preference points or any other certifications (such as Disabilities Permit, NW Goose Certification, Pioneer License).
Since ODFW launched its new online licensing system, online sales have grown from 12 percent to nearly 50 percent of total sales and about 60 percent of the state’s hunters and anglers have opened an online account. All ODFW licenses and tags can also still be purchased at license sale agents throughout the state.
