Fort Berthold Indian Reservation

Waterfowl Stamps

As with the small game stamps, it is believed that waterfowl stamps were first issued for the Fort Berthold Reservation in 1985 or before. Printing information is the same as for the small game stamps. Waterfowl stamps were only required of non-members. In addition, the reservation has not been a popular place to hunt for waterfowl with non-members. For these reasons, only a small number of waterfowl stamps are printed and issued each year.

On more than one occasion, the printer has seen fit to use the same color of paper for waterfowl stamps issued in consecutive years. When this has occurred, the stamps have been sequentially numbered starting with the number following the last one used the previous year (presumably to facilitate auditing). In other words. Fort Berthold Reservation waterfowl stamps for various years can be differentiated based on their serial number. Serial number ranges are included with the listings below. The stamps all have dull gum. None of the waterfowl stamps have had a fee printed on them. Non-members have been charged $20-30 for the stamps during the 1990s.

Waterfowl stamps on license seldom enter the collector market. Specialists are often willing to pay a premium for Fort Berthold usages. Licenses with a variety of tribal stamps affixed may sell for a large premium.
