The lifetime hunting license is in lieu of the equivalent annual hunting license.

    (b) The director shall propose a rule for legislative approval in accordance with article three, chapter twenty-nine-a of this code setting the fee for the lifetime license.



 

    NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to create a life-time hunting license for nonresidents who are sixty-five years or older and who own real property in the state. The bill grants the Director of the Division of Natural Resources rule-making authority.
