March 6th is the big day for those who can’t wait to purchase their new 2013 hunting licenses.
Diane Brookbank, DNR Customer Service Bureau Director said-
“We’ve had many people calling in asking us when they can buy their new licenses and that’s a great reflection on the fantastic fishing and hunting Wisconsin offers. We’re excited that they’re excited and we want to let anglers and hunters know they can purchase their new license starting next week.”
Why would anyone want to purchase a new license when the old ones are good until March 31st?
To be ready to hunt of course. Anyone who plans on hunting with charlie better have their license pre-purchased before the hunt. Nothing makes charlie angrier than when his partner says he has to stop and buy his license on the way to the hunt. This ex-pardner quickly finds himself dumped out along the roadside.
