AUSTIN, Texas - The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is offering Texas hunters and anglers the chance to win a Lifetime Super Combo hunting and fishing license - an $1,800 value - for only $5.
Entries for the Lifetime License Drawing can be purchased anywhere hunting and fishing licenses are sold, as well as on the TPWD Web site. Two drawings will be held, the first on Dec. 30, 2009 and the second on June 30, 2010. Anyone who registers by Dec. 27 will be eligible for both drawings. Entries for the June 30 drawing must be purchased by June 27, 2010. Each drawing will select one winner. Participants can purchase as many entries as they like, and winners are allowed to give the license as a gift to family or friends who are Texas residents.
Proceeds from the drawing will help fund the Parks and Wildlife Department's conservation efforts.
Winners will be exempted from purchasing state hunting and fishing stamps, although they will not be exempted from the Federal Duck Stamp Requirement. On Aug. 31, the price of a lifetime hunting and fishing license increased from $1,000 to $1,800.
