Online duck stamps: LA MI MO NC VA joining program

Posted: Updated:

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Louisiana and four other states will soon be selling federal duck stamps online.

Eight states already do so. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says people in any state can buy the federal duck-hunting permits through those sites.

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina and Virginia also were recently chosen for federal E-Stamps.

Louisiana's online sales will begin Aug. 1.

The federal department's website links to state sites in Arkansas, Florida, Maryland, Texas, Colorado, Idaho, Minnesota and Wisconsin for online duck stamp purchases.

The federal website notes that hunters who buy the stamp online need a printer for their electronic stamp, which they can use for 45 days. Within that time, the government will mail a stamp certified by the U.S. Postal Service.
