Fake websites scamming anglers and hunters

Anglers and hunters in Door County need to make sure they’re not buying their licenses from scam websites. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says they know of two websites that are taking fees for hunting and fishing licenses and then only giving away information on how to get your licenses. These rogue sites are also collecting personal data. Chris Kratcha, the Conservation Warden stationed in Sturgeon Bay, says the best way to make sure you’re getting a real license is to go through the GoWild website.



Kratcha adds if you think you’ve been scammed to contact the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.
