Nonresident students who do not reside in Ohio but are actively enrolled in an Ohio college or university are now allowed to save substantial amounts by purchasing Ohio resident fishing and hunting licenses, according to the Ohio Division of Wildlife.
Providing nonresident students the option to purchase the much lower cost licenses and permits will make it easier and more affordable for out-of-state college students to participate in the excellent hunting hunting and fishing.
Ohio’s resident annual fishing ($25) and hunting licenses ($19) are far less expensive than nonresident fish ($50.96) and hunt ($180.96) licenses.
Nonresident students must be actively enrolled full-time at an accredited Ohio college or university and reside in Ohio to qualify for residency. If students meet those requirements, they may purchase resident hunting licenses, fishing licenses, and permits, including apprentice licenses for those who are new to the activity.
