    PURCHASE FEDERAL DUCK STAMPS – THE DUCK E-STAMP

    The Federal Duck Stamp may be ordered through the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission online, by calling 888-248-6834 or visiting a wildlife service agent. Stamps are available for purchase from July 1 to April 1 of each year. Hunters who order the stamp will be provided a proof-of-purchase receipt (view sample) that may be used to hunt. The physical Federal Duck Stamp will be mailed within 45 days of the order date. Upon receipt of the physical stamp, hunters must sign and carry it on their person when exercising the privileges authorized. The Federal Duck Stamp expires June 30 of each year. Waterfowl hunters 16 years of age and older are required to carry the stamp when hunting migratory waterfowl.

    Those who order the stamp using any of the above methods will receive a proof-of-purchase receipt for a Federal Duck E-Stamp that is valid for 45 days from the date of purchase. This receipt may be used to hunt with for the 45 days it is valid or until the physical stamp is received in the mail. The e-stamp proof-of-purchase is nationally recognized as a valid Federal migratory bird hunting and conservation stamp, is valid in any other state, and must be carried on your person when exercising the privileges authorized.

    The cost of the Federal Duck E-Stamp is $26.50, plus a $2 transaction fee.

    Federal duck stamps also provide free entry into national wildlife refuges that charge entrance fees.

    Physical stamps may be obtained direct from select Post Office locations. Click hereto find a location near you.

    Thanks Craig. Our state went “E” stamp years ago. I don’t like it. I prefer having something in an actual stamp for the money paid for it. I have all my stamps back to about 1980 or so. But missing a bunch of state stamps. :(

    well you could always put the stamp on a box and mail it if necessary it is an actual U.S govt. stamp.
    then you'd at least get your money's worth from it.

    Jerry since I was a teen I would think WTF are they having write over a piece of art. These stamps will be collectable too one day but who wants them after another artist signed them LOL. Same thing with all other stamps and even trout stamps. I have saved my old cardboard hunting licenses that look like a license plate with numbers. Who ever decided to give us a piece of paper now that is thin as toilet paper for a license is wrong.

    Yes, our Government is a very successful Duck Hunter. They collect 37 Million dollars for these duck stamps each year. Each year the Government tries to pass more restrictions on hunting . :rolleyes:

    Jim our hunting guide and regulations used to be very small and sensible. It was a small guide which would fit into a shirt pocket. I still have some of mine. Now it is so confusing and need a lawyer to dictate it. Now it is a huge pamphlet size of a magazine. I have had to call one of DNR offices and question them about a certain hunting area and the regulations there. Sometimes they dont know.

    Yes, and it's too bad that they haven't taken into consideration that some folks would like to accumulate the art work without having to deface it with a signature...

    Same here in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The regs are ludicrously complex and vary from county to county. There are some that change even within the county itself. Blech!
