NC Lifetime Licenses

Postby NCSUDucker » Fri Jan 06, 2006 3:27 pm

Just wanted to let you guys know (if you didn't already) that NC lifetime licenses were slated to increase to $675 on Jan. 1, 2006. This finally prompted me into laying down the money as opposed to putting it off. I did however just check the webpage and the licenses are still listed at $500 via the online purchase.

So if you were thinking its too late you may want to head on over that way! :thumbsup:

Man, I wish I had one, but for now I'll have to keep buying my sportsman's.
Liked your website though. Cool boat, and some good hunt pictures as well. :thumbsup:

Thanks!

I know what you mean....I did the sportsmans for years and kept playing the $40 now or $500 now and always went with the $40 :laughing: That jump of $175 was enought to sway me. Not to mention the cost of all annual licenses is going to increase as well.

Did it increase too? It's been the same price since I was 16 though, and that was 14 years ago. It's been $40 for probably 20 years at least. I'm really surprised it hasn't increased sooner to be honest.

Hasn't increased yet, but the sportsman will increase as well.

Saltwater license included too

Not sure if you were aware, but if you purchased a lifetime license before 12/31/05 you were grandfathered in and would NOT have to purchase the new saltwater fishing licenses starting in 2007.

I saw this in the "Editor's Note" in the December issue of Wildlife in North Carolina, and jumped on it.

Not sure if they're still offering this deal, but you may want to check it out with NCWRC.

Lou, I heard that they still were honoring the deal, but that's hearsay. I find it hard to beleive since it's now January 11th.
