TYLER - Sportsmen and women have until the end of this month until their current Texas annual hunting and fishing license is no good.
Saturday the 2009-2010 hunting and fishing licenses went on sale.
They're not hard to get. More than two million hunting and fishing licenses are issued annually in Texas alone.
The only thing is, this year you may want to bring a little more cash.
That's because most fees for recreational hunting and fishing licenses have increased by five percent.
"For all the opportunities Texas provides for hunters and fishermen, that's a pretty good deal," Smith County Game Warden, Chris Green, says.
Resident hunting licenses now cost 25 dollars.
The super combo all-inclusive license is 68 dollars.
The price for any of the required stamp endorsements or the annual public hunting permit is still the same.
So to make sure you stay on the right side of the law, make sure to get a license before you hit the lake or the woods.
