What is the cost of a salvage permit?


The salvage permits are free. 

After picking up the animal, you have 24 hours to notify Fish and Game, and 72 hours to obtain a salvage permit.

If contacting Fish and Game by phone outside normal business hours, it’s critical you leave your full name, phone number, address, and location of salvage so a permit can be issued and mailed to you within 72 hours.
