Delight outdoor enthusiasts with gifts that last all year

2012 fishing and hunting licenses and more go on sale Dec. 1

SALEM, Ore. — Hunting and fishing licenses, Sports Pacs and parking permits for 2012 go on sale Dec. 1 just in time for holiday gift giving. They can be purchased on the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife website, at ODFW license agents and at ODFW offices that sell licenses.

A Juvenile Resident Sports Pac makes a great gift. It lets 12- to 17-year olds fish, hunt, crab and clam all year for only $52. The package includes one of each of the following: Combination angling/hunting/shellfish license; combined angling harvest tag; upland game bird and Oregon waterfowl validation; and tags (general or controlled) for deer, elk, bear, cougar and spring turkey.

Adult anglers and hunters reap the benefits of reduced pricing in a Sports Pac for $164.75, a $69.75 savings. Senior citizens 70 and over who have been Oregon residents for five years get a fishing license for $15 and a hunting license for $13.75.
Raffle tickets start at $4.50 and make a great gift for any hunter who wants an additional chance to hunt big game. Winners can hunt an expanded area and extended season.

Parking permits make good gifts for wildlife viewers and anglers

For the wildlife viewer or the angler who visits one or all five of the ODFW Wildlife Areas on the Parking Permit Program―Denman, E.E. Wilson, Ladd Marsh, Summer Lake and Sauvie Island, permits can be purchased wherever fishing and hunting licenses are sold. An annual permit is $22.00. (A free parking permit will be included with an annual hunting license; combination fishing and hunting license; and Sports Pac. A parking permit will not be included with an annual fishing license.)

Gift giving

If you are giving a license as a gift, make sure you have the hunter’s or angler’s full name and date of birth (day, month, year). If the person has previously had a license, make sure you have their ODFW hunter/angler ID number, which is found at the top of their license. If you are purchasing a license for someone who has never had a license, you will have to provide his or her social security number in compliance with Federal and State laws.

Support wildlife

Make a donation to the Nongame Wildlife Fund, which helps ODFW biologists conserve the state’s fish, wildlife and their habitats. The Nongame Wildlife Fund, established by the Oregon State Legislature, funds the conservation of the 88 percent of Oregon's wildlife that are not hunted, trapped or fished. Over the years, the Nongame Fund has benefited many species including the peregrine falcon, bald eagle, western snowy plover, western pond turtle, grassland birds, yellow-legged frog, Townsend's big-eared bat and white-headed woodpecker as well as native habitats on both private and public lands.
