Fishing LIcense
« on: March 31, 2018, 12:27:16 PM »
I made it, finally!! Went to get my license today and told the woman I needed the trout stamp as well. She said $5.00. I thought she meant the trout stamp would cost five dollars and that's what it has been I think. Then she says again $5.00 total with the trout stamp. Then it hit me! I asked if I just got the senior license and she said yes! I asked what age that hits and she said 65. I said I don't turn 65 until December and said it's the calendar year. I was stunned and didn't know what to say! But really excited about that too! Just saved $20.00 for living so long! Not a bad deal!!!

Here is how PA does business: http://www.fishandboat.com/Fish/FishingLicense/Documents/fishing-license-pricing.pdf

I got my senior lifetime licenses this year also, My license cost $51.90 then we are required to have a trout/salmon permit, this is the senior combination as listed is Code 145. In PA they don't know the difference between lifetime and 10 years I guess. So that is another $81.90. Total Cost for Lifetime fishing license was $133.80 OR 10 years, whichever comes first.

On the positive side, I don't have to pay the agent fee for the next 10 years or the end of my life, which ever comes first  @--0--0102 So getting old I get to beat some poor dealer out of $20 over the next 10 years.  ##$#@#$%

Florida residents get a free hunting and fishing license at age 65.  It includes all the special permits except the Federal Duck Stamp.
There is a long list of permits one must purchase if he wants to do everything in the outdoors.
Annual hunting license $17, deer permit $5, archery permit $5, crossbow permit $5, M/L permit $5, Turkey permit $10, Wildlife Management Area permit, $26.50, Florida water fowl permit $5 plus the Federal duck stamp.
I remember when a county license was $2, now I don't think they even issue a county license.
The only free permit is the Migratory Bird permit which allow one to hunt doves as long as you also have a valid hunting license.
There is also the fishing licenses needed for both fresh and salt water, they are also free at age 65.
So it really pays to make it to 65 and keep on enjoying the outdoors!

As a senior, I get a break on my fishing license, but I no longer fish.  Also get a break on my deer tag, but not on doe tags.  But before I can purchase any tags, I have to purchase a base license.  The base license also doubles as a small game license.

Georgia is like Florida residents at age 65 get a free license for hunting and fishing that covers everything and I do mean everything. The only thing you'd have to purchase would be the federal duck stamp...
