    Phil in the spirit that the BOC engenders I am willing to help in any way I can with the KICKING part.I am flexible and can help kick any body part you designate with either foot.I'm sure Lilyjoe would be willing to help also.I don't know what you are complaining about,because I have to buy licenses in 3 states, one resident and the other 2 non-resident and keep them on me at all times and JUST hope I hand the game wardens the right one.Oh well I look at the money as being invested in fish and wildlife managemnt.Beats spending it on whiskey or women, I think.!!!!:)

    When your foot gets tired, let me know, Jim.:)

    Seriously, Phil, great post! I wanted to go out yesterday morning, and didn't even think about needing a new licence. This post, in fact, reminded me of that. I think this year, I might get a PA licence as well, since I am up there pretty often.

    Thanks for the reminder Phil!

    You know it makes a person feel good about being a part of this great community. Everyone is always doing their best to help each other out in anything that may come up. I'm proud to say these two show the true meaning of being a BOC member with their selfless offers of help. Thanks guys, it's really nice to see such generous offers of help like this. ;)

    In PA the license is 22 bucks for the basic license. In addition to that, I usually pay an extra 15 bucks for the trout/salmon stamp and the Lake Erie stamp for a grand total of 37 bucks. And you can't get a lifetime license till you are 65 years old.

    Jason, are you kidding?:confused: Sorry, but what a racket! A life time licence, at 65? Now, don't get me wrong, I know there are plenty of folks fishing and getting around with no problem whatsoever in their senior years, but at that age, they should be getting to fish for free, not shelling out hundreds of bucks for a lifetime licence that MIGHT only last them a short period of time.:sad:

    Sorry I ranted, but that is ludicris! Isn't a lifetime licence around $500?

    Yeah I do think that its ridiculius that you can't buy a lifetime license till you are 65 in PA. And as far as the extra stamps, who knows if thats necessary or not. Being that they stock so many trout every year is one reason why the costs keep going up. Sorry, not a big trout fan but I will go for steelhead up in Erie on occasion.

    Tennessee is rediculous to me. Though this includes all hunting and fishing licenses. Right now fishing/hunting is 28.00, big game archery is 28.00, muzzleloader is 28.00 and gun is 28.00. Add a trout stame and it's another 18.00 and waterfowl is 31.00.



    Under 3 years of age - $200.00

    3 years of age but less than 7 years of age - $540.00

    7 years of age but less than 13 years of age - $810.00

    13 years of age but less than 51 years of age - $1,620.00

    51 years of age but less than 65 years of age - $945.00

    65 years of age or older - $270.00

    About the only people I know that buy the lifetime are ones moving out of state.One guy I know comes back to deer hunt every year for the last 6 years.He has almost paid for the lifetime in money he saved by not getting a out of state license.
    Last year MDC shared info with some border states-60 or so people were caught claiming residence in 2 and even 3 states.
