Stocking Stuffers from the DWR

For the true outdoorsmen, the winter season simply means putting on more layers before hitting your favorite fishing hole. The Division of Wildlife Resources recommend fishing and hunting licenses as the perfect stocking stuffer for real or would-be outdoorsman this Christmas and for ice fisherman, the gift will come just in time. “Some of the state’s waters are starting to ice over,” shares Wildlife Licensing Coordinator Judi Tutorow. “As soon as the ice is safe to walk on, another ice fishing season will be underway.” The easiest way to buy a license as a gift is through the DWR’s website. “The only information you need to provide is the person’s name, height, weight, eye color, hair color, date of birth, address and phone number,” shares Tutorow, who emphasized that purchases need to be made soon so the license has time to arrive to you in the mail.
