December 15 buy your 2015 licenses and permits


Get a head start on the 2015 seasons buy buying your licenses, permits early

PRATT – It’s a new year, you’ve got your tackle bag in order, your reels all have new line, and your buddy just called saying he found a school of fish and he’s catching them faster than he can reel them in. You hightail it to the lake and begin to unload your gear only to realize you forgot to buy your 2015 fishing license. So much for hitting that honey hole. Most annual licenses and permits expire Dec. 31, but you can avoid missing out on another fishing hot spot by buying early. Licenses and permits for the 2015 hunting, fishing seasons, as well as park permits, go on sale Dec. 15, 2014 and are valid through end of 2014 and all of 2015.
