Simply answer a few easy questions and you will receive a validation number to write on your license. You must have the number in possession while hunting migratory birds. It's free and it's easy. You only need to register once each season, not each time you hunt. The information you provide will help wildlife managers gather information on the migratory game bird harvest.
