Florida Offers Discounted Fishing, Hunting Licenses For Youth – Patch.com
CLEARWATER, FL—For those floundering to come up with a gift for budding sportsman in their life, here’s an idea.
The Pinellas County Tax Collector’s Office is offering sportsman’s licenses for youth at a reduced cost. Gov. Rick Scott issued a proclamation discounting Florida Resident Sportsman’s License fees by 25 percent for residents ages 17 and younger. The discount is in effect through Dec. 31.
The lifetime license covers freshwater and saltwater recreational fishing, hunting and most of the associated permits.
The license usually costs up to $1,000. But, with the discount, it costs $300 for youngsters up to age 4, $525 for youth age 5 to 12 and $750 for teens age 13 to 17.
Sportsman’s licenses may be purchased in person at Pinellas County Tax Collector branch offices and online at www.GoOutdoorsFlorida.com. Residency must be verified. In addition, drivers may elect to have their lifetime sportsman’s designation added to an original or renewed driver license for a $1 fee.
