DNR changes may flag resident license applications


DES MOINES (KWWL)-- A change in how officials process hunting licenses may cause problems for some residents.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resource says the electronic licensing system for hunting, fishing and trapping will now automatically identify people who have previously received licenses as nonresidents. That means that anyone who has received a nonresident license in the past may be flagged, even if they are now a current resident.

Those people will need to provide proof of resident status and complete a form.

It is part of an effort to identify nonresidents. Officials say there are a growing number of nonresidents attempting to illegally get a resident license.
