Hunting & Fishing Licenses

Services During COVID-19

Linn County’s top priority is the health and safety of employees and the public. That is why Linn County offices reopened July 20 on an appointment-only basis as part of a phased approach to reopening. Linn County will continue to monitor the evolving COVID-19 situation and adjust County operations and safety measures as needed. Anyone entering County buildings will be required to wear a face covering and social distance. COVID-19 symptom screening will also be in place.

  • Most licenses can be purchased from the Iowa DNR. We encourage the public to continue using these remote service options.
