TPWD News Release — Aug. 25, 2009

Lifetime License Applications Must Be Received by Aug. 31

AUSTIN, Texas — Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is reminding customers who want to buy lifetime hunting, fishing or combo licenses at fiscal year 2009 prices that purchase applications must be received at TPWD headquarters by Aug. 31. Applications that are post-marked by Aug. 31, but not received by this date, will not be accepted.

The department’s 2010 fiscal year starts Sep. 1, and on that date the electronic sales system will automatically sell licenses at a new, higher price. The change is part of an across-the-board increase in hunting, fishing and boat registration fees.

Starting Sep. 1, Texas Lifetime Resident Hunting License and Texas Lifetime Resident Fishing License costs will increase from $600 to $1,000, and the Texas Lifetime Resident Combination Hunting and Fishing License will increase from $1,000 to $1,800.

Lifetime license purchases require buyers to submit an Application for Texas Resident Lifetime License form. The application form may be obtained at any TPWD Law Enforcement office in Texas, from the TPWD Web site or by calling (800) 792-1112 (option 9, extension 4820). Lifetime licenses are only available for sale from the department’s Austin headquarters.
