Hunting/Fishing Licenses: The Perfect Gift

Saturday, November 28th, 2009

odfw_logoI mentioned yesterday the value of shopping online this holiday season. Finding the right gift for your outdoorsman can sometimes be difficult in conventional malls and department stores, which is why the Internet poses such a valuable alternative. For instance, yesterday, I noted how Coast offers a variety of hunting and fishing equipment including reliable LED products and quality knives. Today, however, I was reminded of another perfectly suitable gift for the hunter or fisherman in your life that can be found online as well: a license. According to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW), hunting and fishing licenses for 2010 go on sale December 1, giving you plenty of time to make your purchase without setting a foot inside those busy stores.

For $55, you can get a new Juvenile Resident Sports Pac that allows 12 to 17 year olds to fish, hunt, crab and clam all year long. Adult anglers and hunters can get the same experiences with an Adult Sports Pac for $164.75. And senior citizens can get a fishing license for $15 and a hunting license for $13.75. Additionally, raffle tickets start at $4.50 for any hunter who wants an extra chance to hunt big game during an extended season and in an expanded hunt area.


Hunting and Fishing Licenses Make Great Gifts!

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2008

On the first day of Christmas, my true-love gave to me: a hunting license!  Ok, so you don’t exactly have to be someone’s “true love” to give him a hunting or fishing license, but whoever receives your gift will certainly love you for it.  If you’re struggling finding the perfec gift for your sportsman, you can’t go wrong with gifting him the ability to spend more time doing what he loves.  In Oregon, hunting and fishing licenses for the 2009 season went on sale yesterday, December 1.

According to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, in order to purchase a license as a gift, you’ll need the full name and date of birth (month, day, year) of the recipient. If you’re purchasing a license for someone who has never had a license, you will have to provide his or her social security number. Also, be sure to tell the sales clerk you’re making a gift purchase.
