Ohio's 2012-13 fishing, hunting and trapping licenses and permits will be on sale starting March 1, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife.
Each buyer must have a Social Security number recorded in the system. People who purchased licenses last year now can use their customer ID number and will not have to supply their SSN again.
SSNs are required to purchase a recreational license, regardless of age, for the purpose of child support collection enforcement under federal law.
Current licenses expire Feb. 29.
Licenses and permits can be purchased online at wildohio.com and at hundreds of agent outlets throughout the state. A complete list of participating license sales agents can be found on the website.
