A hunting license is a regulatory or legal mechanism to control recreational and sports hunting.
Hunting may be regulated informally by "unwritten law", "self restraint", or "morality" and by laws "enforced by government authority."
The purposes for requiring hunting licenses include the protection of natural treasures, and raising tax revenue (often, but not always, to dedicated funds).
