The gift of a lifetime
Lifetime hunting/fishing permits make thoughtful gift

	You can give a lifetime of misty sunrises in the field and fresh fish in the
pan when you buy Indiana lifetime hunting and fishing licenses as holiday gifts.
	These Department of Natural Resources lifetime permits replace the purchase
of annual licenses for hunting and fishing in Indiana, and send outdoor
enthusiasts straight to the field. The convenience and value of lifetime
licenses are obvious since the permits can cover all state licenses and
stamps, reducing annual expenditures.
	“I received a lifetime fishing license for Christmas, and the lifetime
hunting license for college graduation,” said Andy Wuestefeld of Fortville.
“The hunting permit paid for itself in five years, and I’m constantly
	  In nearby Fountaintown, Bill McCracken gives lifetime licenses for employee
bonuses, and Rick Lopez, Muncie, plans to buy lifetime licenses for his
grandchildren. “They’ll have one less excuse for not fishing with Granddad
when they’re young, and can always use what I’ve taught them.”
	The DNR offers lifetime licenses in various price ranges and categories. The
basic lifetime fishing license covers the annual resident fishing license for
the holder’s entire life. For an additional cost, the comprehensive lifetime
fishing license covers all annual resident fishing licenses and annual
trout/salmon stamp charges.
	A basic lifetime hunting license replaces the annual resident hunting
license. A comprehensive lifetime hunting license includes state hunting
stamps and turkey and deer licenses. A comprehensive hunting and fishing
license also can be purchased. A lifetime trapping license soon will be available.
	Funds from the sale of these licenses are used to manage Indiana’s fish and
wildlife resources.
	Lifetime licenses may be purchased in person up to Christmas Eve and by mail
from the Customer Service Center, Indiana Government Center, 402 West
Washington St., Room W160, Indianapolis IN 46204. Licenses can be sent by
overnight delivery for a small fee. The licenses may be purchased with cash,
check or money order. Discounts apply for Hoosiers older than 50. For more
information or an application, call the Customer Service Center at 317/233-4976.
