SALEM, Ore.—New Tyvek license holders are now available at Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife offices that sell fishing and hunting licenses. Just ask for one when you buy your 2008 fishing or hunting license.
ODFW staff advises against using plastic license holders or laminating licenses because, while new license paper is tear resistant and water resistant, interaction with plastic may damage the surface of the license paper.
“The new license paper is durable, not indestructible,” said Douglas Juergesen, ODFW Information Services administrator. “We suggest people use a Tyvek holder or carry the license without a holder.”
