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.

Surviving Black Friday a la Coast

Friday, November 27th, 2009

C11Well, the busiest shopping day of the year is upon us. I was astonished to learn that stores were opening up as early 1 and 2 o’clock in the morning. I’ve heard of hunters getting up before the break of dawn, but it looks like bargain hunting is in a league of its own. If you’re like me, however, you’ll be missing all the early bird specials and deals Black Friday has to offer. In fact, you probably won’t see the inside of any stores today at all.

So, what exactly is my plan for finding the best deals on my holiday shopping? The Internet, of course. Thankfully, virtually everything you could ever need for your friends and family can be found for sale online. And what about the bargains, you ask? Well, I’d submit that the world wide web is practically the best place to pay the amount you want for the product you want.
