    I was just on the VDGIF web site :

    (http://www.dgif.virginia.gov/licenses/)

    buying my hunting licenses for the year and noticed that they now sell the VMRC Recreational Gill Net license as well as several other "saltwater" licenses. That'll sure make it easier to renew the Gill Net License in January. That's a very nice service to have...thanks VDGIF! :big_smile:

    I am also happy to be able to buy the Gill Net License on line. Before I had to drive 30 minutes to Dance's Sporting Goods in Colonial Heights to get mine. Great store but still a hike out of my way to get a license.

    Be carefull before you buy that gillnet license on line , I have bought one before and found out it is only good in the countys down by Virginia beach.

    Powhatan,
    It is listed as a Saltwater Recreational Gill Net because it is governed by the VMRC. It is good only in any tidal waters of Virginia.

    JWfish,
    It is the correct license. I called the VDGIF to verify. Still $9.00 and governed by the VMRC.

    Thanks for the headzup, Chuck. I have found that the VDGIF's Internet offering is one of the best of any state around.
