As we enter this digital age more and more things are becoming electronic. Our hunting/fishing licenses are one of them. I have no idea where my paper license is because I just use the electronic version that is on the dwr app. My question is I know you have to attach your duck stamp to your license and sign it, how does that work if you are using an electronic license?

You just need to have a signed stamp in possession. It doesn't need to be on a paper license.

I'd put the stamp on a business card or carry it in a holder just to be able to find it when and if you get checked.

I just took a picture with my phone and have been checked twice with no issues.
Did you use the app too or just show them a picture of the license and stamp together?

When we were checked last year, we were told that it needed to be attached to the licence. Signed and attached. If not, then he said, people can transfer the stamp. So i carry both. Electronic and the actual licence and stamp. problem solved.

My brother and I were discussing this earlier this week. It's nice that I can download my license and input my walk in access # and my HIP # but no such option for the duck stamp. In the end I think the app and downloaded license ends up being more of a backup just in case. I still have to carry my duck stamp and any other physical tag (deer, elk, etc.) so the app doesn't get me much more than a backup in most cases. Hopefully between that and a photo if I ever had to I could talk my way out of a ticket but I always carry my license too. It's tough at times though because I always have my phone, but I often have to search for my license as it could be in my tackle box or with my hunting gear, etc. I guess that's my own problem for being so disorganized.

Well someone whom I know personally and will remain nameless ( uh me) has been known on one occasion....okay two, to leave his wallet in his pants while putting them to wash...pretty much destroyed the license and duck stamp. I now keep my license in a separate plastic case not in my wallet. I pick it up and put it in my pocket when I leave out to go hunting. It would be great to have a backup in the unlikely event I forgot the license at home.

I don't get it, I put my license in my wallet then there is no worrying. The digital copy should be the backup, not the primary. Also those duck stamps are neat, did you know the other side is sticky??! I did something really cool, I attached the stamp to my license! talk about a win win! :) ;-)

You can use a sharpie ink pen to write the hip number on the screen of the phone.

Open the app, go to hunting licenses, select your current license, and there should be a green edit box (this is on my iPhone). That opens up a box you can put in your HIP# and expiration date.

I just signed my duck stamp, printed my name in ink, then wrote my HIP on it and took a picture and have it saved on my phone. Technically you are supposed to have the physical stamp, but I figure a digital picture with all that info rules out the question of sharing it with others. I've never been checked though.
