 Do I need to bring identification to get a hunting or fishing license?

Chisago City DMV has been approved as an Electronic License System (ELS) Agent of the DNR and can issue hunting and fishing licenses.  ELS requires that Minnesota residents furnish a driver's license number, public safety identification number, or DNR firearms safety training number as proof of residency.  Minnesota residents who do not have one of these identification numbers must obtain one before purchasing a hunting, fishing or other license.  More information on hunting and fishing licenses is found on the MN DNR's website.
