Lifetime hunting ($1000) or fishing ($1000) or combo ($1800)...
Is it worth it?
What if you move to a different state?

Whether it's worth it depends on your age.

I got mine when they were just a $1000. Should have gotten it way back when they were only $300!!! bang
And they are still good if you move out of state.

yep, depends on your age. I bought my son a lifetime hunting license for his 25th birthday (ummm, I think it was his 25th??? but might have been 21st) as I foresee him having a good 50+ years of free hunting which would pay for itself @ $25/year but those fees might go up over time.

I have a friend that used to work in various states for extended periods, he bought a lifetime license in each of them that were available, CA, AZ, CO, TX, OK, ID, WA, and maybe OR, he retired in OK ... yeah it adds up but he hunts in all for residence rates and he typically will hit 2-3 different states each year.

Bought mine when I turned 18. Got some b-day money and what I had saved and decided that was a good investment. Paid $1000 for hunting/fishing combo, and the current Super Combo costing $68, it will only take 15 years to pay for its self, and it's got 3 years to go.

I bought mine at 1000. I knew I was moving to New Mexico a year or so later. It has paid itself off already in just over 4 years. It is a great investment

I have a lifetime for both Arkansas and Texas, $1000 each. One of the best things I ever did. Since I don't have to buy out of state Arkansas license it paid for itself in 3 years.

It's worth it if you move out of state. Maybe not if you stay in state. Especially not for fishing if you stay in state because once you turn 65 you don't need a Texas fishing license anymore.

I think you have to be 85 to get it free, born before Sept 1 1930. I could be wrong tho

I bought me and my son a lifetime combo license a few years ago. If you plan to hunt/fish for the next 12-18 years, then it will pay for itself.

I snapped up that Non-resident Lifetime before they got smart and discontinued it. More than paid for itself. grin
