Reduce Risk, Protect Your Health


To protect your health and ours, the Wildlife Resources Division strongly suggests online and email license buying procedures.

Emailing Pictures Using Android

Make sure that the photo you’re trying to email is saved onto your phone. Open all controls by tapping the white arrow in the bottom left. Tap into your gallery and open the picture. Tap the Share icon and choose your desired email. The share icon is two small arrows with one circle between them. After tapping the share icon, you are given a number of options, depending on the digital accounts associated with the phone. Select the photos you want to email. After choosing your email option, you will be brought to a screen where you can navigate through the phone's photos. Select images by gently tapping on the image you want to send. You are able to send multiple images by checking them all off consecutively. Tap the next button after picking your photographs. This will carry the chosen photos into a new window, where they will be attached to an email. Compose your email message and send. By tapping on the fields, enter an email contact and a message if desired. You can also add a subject here.

Emailing Pictures Using iPhone iOS

Open your photo app and find the picture(s) you want to email. The photo app is an icon that looks similar to a multi-colored flower. Scroll up in down by stroking the screen. Select your photos. Click "Select" at the upper right hand of your screen, then click the picture(s) you wish to send. If you don’t see the “Select” option, try tapping the photo once. This will pull up all options. Click the share symbol and attach to your mail. The share symbol is at the bottom left of the screen and looks like a square with an arrow pointing upwards. After tapping the share option, tap “Email photos”. Some iPhones require you to tap "Next" and then "Mail". Repeat these steps until all the pictures you want to email are attached. Construct your email. After you click on the mail icon, a new message will appear. Write the body of the email and fill out the subject.

If you are using iOS 8 or higher, move the cursor down to the body of the email, where you'd normally add a memo, information, or other various texts. Hold down in that area, until a magnifying glass pops up. Release your finger from the screen, and a black menu should show up with options for "select" and "select all". To the right of the black bar, press the arrow pointing to the right. "Quote Level" and "Insert Photo or Video" options should appear after pressing the arrow. Tap "Insert Photo or Video." Add contacts. Click on the “To:” field if your cursor is not already on it. Type in who you want to send your message to. Send your email. Once all pictures are attached, select send at the top right corner of the screen.
