DNR: Online scams target people buying hunting, fishing licenses

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Wisconsin DNR is sending a warning about scams targeting people buying hunting or fishing licenses online.

The department says it's aware of at least two websites appearing to sell licenses. After paying a fee, people didn't get their license, they only got information on how to apply for one. 

The websites are also collecting personal information.

The DNR says people should buy licenses from a DNR Service Center or authorized locations like a sporting goods store or a bait shop.
