4/17 – This year NB has put an online licensing system in place. No matter how it is handled – online by you or in a shop – a portion of the process must be done online in order to get a special identifying “Outdoor Card” number that will be used in any other hunting or fishing licensing you participate in. Here is the link. Even if you plan to buy your license in camp you can get your Outdoor Card number in advance. My experience was that it takes a few minutes to get through Outdoor Card part of it, the license takes only seconds.
