Federal Stamps Available Online

Federal Duck stamps, required of all waterfowl hunters 16 years of age and over, can now be purchased online in addition to the U.S. Post offices and some Oklahoma license dealers.

To purchase a stamp, visit duckstamp.com and order a stamp, which will be mailed to the hunter. Shipping costs apply.

Hunters needing an immediate stamp may purchase one from Arkansas Game & Fish Commission. Visit agfc.com, purchase a federal duck stamp, then print out the receipt. This receipt serves as a stamp and must be signed and carried by the hunter until the actual stamp arrives by mail. Questions? Call (800) 364-4263.
