Hunting & Fishing

The Recorder’s office sells fishing, hunting, fur harvestor, deer and wild turkey licenses. Habitat, migratory bird and trout fees may be purchased as well. Our office also has other special licenses available.

The Dallas County Recorder's Office installed a new and improved version of the Electronic Licensing System of Iowa June 15th. Dallas County was the first in the state to set up the ELSI II. 

For additional hunting information visit the Iowa Department of Natural Resources at or contact the DNR in Des Moines at 515-281-8688.
