Florida Alert: Upgrade Hunting or Fishing License to Lifetime Sportsman's License

Tuesday, December 2, 2014

DATE:   December 2, 2014
TO:      USF & NRA Members and Friends
FROM:  Marion P. Hammer
           USF Executive Director
           NRA Past President

Last month, Governor Rick Scott issued an Executive Order authorizing the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to lower the price for a Lifetime Sportsman's License for a 5 to 21 year old for $500 rather than the normal price of $1,000 for limited time during the Holidays.

This special price is for a limited time only (Nov. 24th - December 31, 2014).

The Lifetime Sportsman's License includes Hunting, Freshwater Fishing and Saltwater Fishing licenses; and Deer, Wildlife Management Area, Archery, Muzzleloading Gun, Crossbow, Turkey, Florida Waterfowl, Snook and Lobster permits. 

A Lifetime Sportsman’s License allows fishing and hunting in Florida for the rest of the license holder’s life, even if that person is no longer a resident of the state.

 

SPECIAL UPGRADE OPPORTUNITY

If a person, age 5 to 21 years old already has a Lifetime hunting, freshwater fishing or salt water fishing license he/she can upgrade their Lifetime licenses to a Lifetime Sportsman's License.

Upgrades may be purchased at a Tax Collector’s office or via phone at 888-347-4356. 

To purchase online, the upgrades are not located in the package grid as the promotional sportsman is.  Customers will need to select Purchase a License and the upgrade option is located in the Lifetime Section.

 

PURCHASE A LIFETIME SPORTSMAN'S LICENSE


To purchase the license online you will need to have your Visa or MasterCard and the child or young adult's full name, date of birth, Florida mailing address and either his/her Social Security number OR the FWC ID number from a previous license OR the youth’s driver’s license number.

Go this address and follow instructions.

The license may also be purchased at all Florida county tax collector's offices, and by calling toll-free 888-FISH-FLORIDA (888-347-4356).

If you need further assistance with your purchase, you may contact the FWC Help Desk at (850) 270-2750.
