DNR QUESTION OF THE WEEK Q: IfI purchase a hunting or fishing license on the DNR website, do ! need to keep a printed copy with me out in the field? A: If you're using a home computer, you can print most licenses and need to keep a copy with you when participating in the activity. In cases where the license has a tag, the license will be mailed to you, and you must have the license in possession. Licenses purchased on a mobile device are issued in elec- tronic format, and you can choose to receive an email and/or text message that serves as your license. In that case, you must carry your mobile device or a printed copy of this email or text message to show proof of license. - Steve Michaels, licens- ing program director Addition to Stephens Funeral rvice staff Stephens Funeral Service- Walnut Grove Funeral Home and Westbrook Funeral Home pleased to" announce the addition of Devon Sandgren to our staff.
