Free Licenses


Was at a local gun shop today and saw a elderly couple buying Licenses , and the clerk asked if they wanted 2 spring turkey permits = Yes Furtakers permit = Yes and any other free ones.
So my question is how many of the other permits that are issued maybe go to people who don't even use them.

Probably a fair few, more the merrier I say as long as they aren't anti's trying to limit lottery drawing permits.

I'm sure a bunch do, we have them come in for licenses and since they are free they just want everyone they can get. With the old system printed on the colored paper they would actually measure them and brag about how long their license was! ;)

While thinking on this, are we ever going to get a breakdown of the sales of licenses again? Its been a few years since I've seen a full breakdown.

I've seen it, just never paid a lot of attention to it since the number of fur taker permits with the trapping endorsement is way out of skew anyway. Now you got me wondering too!

My thoughts are that it might sque the numbers of trappers the Division uses to figure harvest , and might influence the Bobcat season is by lottery or not.

I think they already know those numbers are not very reliable Joe, and I'd be shocked if a cat season came with a lottery. ;)

don't you have to be like 80 plus to get free lisences ?

after like 65 or so you get a reduction in the cost ?

Pa. did bobcat as a lottery at first , I think thats changed now. I think fisher is still by lottery there .

I think that might be the way to go with bobcats the first few years , I don't see them doing it by quota or 1 per trapper per season either.

The Pa. cat lottery only lasted a few years, I'm pretty sure fisher is just a real short season.

A lottery is worthless for any kind of harvest control or data gathering. In Pa. cat lottery most of the tags went to deer hunters because so many of them applied.

I think the free license is born in 1938 or earlier, born after that is half price. When it changed to half price all of those 65+ that had qualified for free were basically grandfathered on to remain free the rest of their lives.
