Have you a current hunting license?

Slightly less than 5% of the adult US population has a hunting license. I wondered what percentage of gunowners have a hunting license which led me to wondering what percentage of RFCers have hunting licenses.

About the only time I have not had a hunting/fishing license since I was 16 years old was the year I was in SE Asia.
When I turned 65 here in Ga. I got an honorary Sportsman's license which is good for life. The only stamp I need to buy is the Federal Duck Stamp. Georgia likes their sportsmen of both sexes.

I gave up murdering elk when it turned into more work than fun. Used to love blue grouse and pheasant hunting but opportunities are slim on those around here any more. Paper, steel, and clay pigeons are my game of choice nowadays.

I enjoy reading about you folks and your adventures though!

...and with what gets spent on guns and ammo I'm still supporting our DOW with Pittman-Robertson bucks

When I got back from Vietnam in 1970, I bought a lifetime hunting and fishing license for my state. It was only $100 at the time and a massive steal since I hunted about everything that walked or flew at the time. Now that same license is almost $1000 for young men and women. Still a good deal if you hunt a lot of different game. I don't hunt very much now but still have my license, even though at my age it is free.

Don't have a current hunting license at this time. Work has interfered with deer camp the last 5 years. Thought I was finally going to get to go this year as I finally had some vacation time built up, but alas it wasn't to be for a number of reason. Hopefully it will happen next year.

I usually have a current hunting license, but sometimes it lapses. Like now. I am thankful for the reminder though because I like to support our State's hunting and fishing programs.

I have land to hunt on, if were a mind to. Here in cornfields and cows country, a hunting license is not required to hunt on your own land. That said, I quit hunting years ago. Clay, paper, steel targets and bowling pins are the only 'game' I pursue now. I haven't had any real interest in hunting wild game since I was a young man.

I have had a hunting license every year since I was 14 ( required for upland game ) but hunted small game for several years prior to that. I missed having one in 66 & 67 while I was in the service. Our State recently allowed vets & Seniors ( 65+ ) to obtain a combination Hunting & Fishing license for $5.00 which allows hunting small game & upland birds. Wildlife Management areas are largely funded by license fees so are challenged these days with less and less people hunting and/or even buying a permit.

Just ordered and printed out the 2019 version so am ready for some hunting & fishing action for the new year.

Voted yes.

Yes I do. The life time kind. Even though I don't hunt any more and haven't in a while. I still support hunting and would probably still hunt if I was younger and healthier. Also the area I live in has grown so much there's not many places left to go. Even the public areas are full of hikers and mountain bikers. What's funny is I see more game in and around my yard in a weeks time than I use to see in two or three years on game lands thirty years ago.

Yes, and I am planning to make time this January to use it. The State has also been reporting a bumper mast year. So, hopefully Penns Woods will be bountiful.
