Looking at several threads where people related changes in the season to increased revenue through purchased of a different license. My question is does anybody buy separate licenses and not the sportsman license? And what would be the purpose? I myself hunt deer, fish fresh and saltwater. I say every year I am going to get into small game but have never done it. But either way one license once a year and I am covered for everything (with the obvious exception of ducks which I have no intent to ever hunt).

Unless things have changed, you can buy just a hunting license that just applies to gun season for less money than a sportsman license. I think you can buy all the licenses seperately and still be a little less than a sportsman license (I hate to state things from memory before I check on them for validity)

If anything,when special seasons are shortened it makes it more unlikely that a person will buy a sportsman license so I think the recent PW season changes are a negative rather than a positive in terms of license sales. The only exception might be if an out of state hunter wants to use a firearm later in the year, he might be more inclined to hunt in Mississippi and buy one of those 'big dollar' licenses if he can bring his weapon of choice.

The earlier proposed November PW opener would have been different. It would have encouraged every hunter to buy a sportsman license (rather than the std hunting license)and the early firearm opener would have likely been appealing to many out of state hunters looking to use a firearm. The resulting non-resident license sales in addition the the higher sportsman license sales would have likely been a revenue bonaza to the department. Many suspected that was at least part of the motivation.

I'll eventually go ahead and spend the $1000 on the lifetime license .. it'll save me 2 grand in my lifetime..I can deal with the extra cost of duck stamps also

I still buy a sportsman license even though I hunt on my own land, The state needs all the money they can get from what I've heard,so whats 33.00 per year to help the MDWFP keep their radio show on with that know-it-all JT.

I've been buying the sportsman since it came out. I don't always need it but I don't mind helping the mdwfp because in all fairness we do have it pretty good here in Misipi. I enjoy(so does my son)Misipi outdoors and our management areas and lakes are nice!
