A hunting license is required to take any animal, whether it be big or small game. To take big game you must go through the draw system where it basically a lottery. This is to prevent over killing of our precious big game species.
If drawn for a tag, deer and elk will cost you $200. There is an additional $50 general hunting license fee on top of this. Turkey will run you $100 and also requires the general hunting license.
If you are not hunting big game, all you need is your general hunting license. Just remember bag limits still apply.
