New licensing system

ESRD will be working with a new partner to provide more efficient licensing services to hunters, anglers and licence vendors.

The new system is scheduled to replace the old one on March 16, 2014.

We are working hard behind the scenes to make the transition as smooth as possible.

Thank you for your understanding!
