MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Dec. 15, 2014 – Following the lead of the House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate passed legislation making the federal duck stamp permanently available online. Sponsored by Sen. Roger Wicker, the bill now awaits the president's signature.
"Utilizing technology makes obtaining a duck stamp more efficient and cost-effective for everyone," Wicker said. "In addition to the convenience it provides to sportsmen, this proposal is important to conservation efforts, helping preserve both our country's natural beauty and outdoors traditions."
The Permanent Electronic Duck Stamp Act, sponsored by Congressman Rob Wittman, passed the U.S. House of Representatives in early June. Physical stamps will still be mailed to buyers, but the online proof of purchase provides new convenience to sportsmen and women by immediately fulfilling the requirement of possessing a stamp to hunt waterfowl. After 45 days, the proof of purchase expires and purchasers must have the traditional paper stamp.
"Anyone with an internet connection and a credit card can now purchase federal duck stamps from the comfort of their own home," said Kellis Moss, DU's director of public policy. "State hunting and fishing licenses have been available online for years, and this is one more step in making waterfowl hunting more accessible to everyone."
