Waterfowl Hunters - Buy a Federal Duck Stamp Online

Waterfowl hunters, buy your Federal Duck Stamp without waiting until hunting season starts, or waiting in line at the post office. Buy your Duck Stamp conveniently online, along with your other licenses starting July 27, 2015. The electronic Federal Duck Stamp (Nebraska) is considered TEMPORARY and is legal to hunt with for up to 45 days from purchase, during which time you will get a physical stamp in the mail.

For every dollar generated by the sale of federal Duck Stamps, 98 cents goes directly to buy or lease wetland habitat for protection in the National Wildlife Refuge System. Proceeds have been used to purchase or lease about 5.6 million acres of wetland habitat on many of the more than 560 national wildlife refuges.
