Purchasing your undersubscibed Licence

  1. Reserve an undersubscribed lincence:
  2. You need your 10 digit WIN (Wildlife Identification Number). You may reserve a licence of the same kind for the same lake for up to 3 other anglers provided you have their WINs.

    Undersubscribed Licences (once reserved) can also be purchased online or at licence issuers.

Normal licence restrictions apply regarding licence combinations and eligibility. For example, if you were drawn in one of the Special Walleye Licence draws,you cannot obtain another licence through the undersubscribed process.

An angler does not have to apply in the draw in order to be eligible to obtain an undersubscribed licence. Draw priorities are not affected by the acquisition of an undersubscribed licence.
