All Parents Pay Attention!

Did you know that if your child is younger than a certain age, he or she may be eligible for a lifetime hunting and fishing or Sportsman's license at greater than 50% of the cost if an adult were to try to purchase the same thing?

I just did a quick Google search on Lifetime Hunting Licenses for Children and realized that quite a few states offer this discount. My children are too old now to benefit much from it, but those of you with small children or anticipating having children may want to research it some more.

For example:
Florida Lifetime Sportsmans License for under age 4 is $401.50 (it covers everything including lobster hunting). The same license for age 13 and older is $ 1,001.50

Maine Lifetime Sportsmans License under age 5 is $400, and under age 15 is $800.

Georgia Lifetime Sportsmans License age 2-15 is $350, under age 2 is $200

Virginia Legacy License for under age 2 is $125, and nonresident $250 (Wow!)

South Carolina Lifetime License under age 2 is $300.

There were numerous other states participating and I just gathered a brief bit of info on the first few I saw. I wish I had known about this a decade ago! This is something to consider. With a monumental savings right now, and sparing your child or children from ever needing to purchase a license ever again, who can say this isn't an amazing deal!

Go get your kids their licenses!

I purchased lifetime license for myself and all 3 of my kids when they first came out here in GA. and my kids were under 2 at the time which means it cost me a total of $1100 at the time I bought them, and the best part about it is my kids will never have to worry about buying a license for GA. I would urge anyone that can afford to buy them for their kids to do so.
At the time I bought my lifetime license the sportsman's license here was $60 and the lifetime was $500 that works out to paying for 8.3 years worth of sportsman's licenses at one and every year after that its a $60 bonus in my opinion that's a no brainer

Excellent comment Mike. Thank you for sharing your experience with the rest of us. I am going to do the same and make my purchase in Tennessee. I think the only thing that isn't covered is the Federal Duck Stamp and migratory bird permit, but other than that it certainly is a savings.

I think it may be very convenient. You can easily compare prices in different countries and find your dream hunting. Your opinion is highly needed!
