The Details

What you need

If you are a non-resident hunter, you must complete a HIP survey for each state you hunt in.

If you hunt waterfowl (duck and goose), you must buy a waterfowl stamp, and will complete the HIP survey during that transaction. 

If the top of your hunting or sporting license states HIP Survey Completed then you don't need to complete the survey for this year.
