Lifetime Resident Fishing Permit------

Postby T HAUS » March 24th, 2004, 6:52 pm

I e-mailed HQ for info on the permit. Here is the replies I got back:

I will mail a lifetime permit application to you today. Just complete

the form, enclose your check or credit card information along with a

copy of your Missouri drivers license as proof of your residency and

age, and we will process your request.

If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact


So then I asked how they issued the permits, yearly or what and what would happen if I lost it...

When a lifetime privilege is issued to you, you will receive a letter

that states the privilege has been issued and that you will receive in

the mail a gold lifetime heritage card. The lifetime heritage card is

what you will carry as proof of your privilege. There is no paper

permit or renewal each year. If it is lost, contact this office and we

will reissue the card.

So then I asked what if I moved out of state sometime down the road....

You have to be a resident of Missouri to purchase a lifetime permit but

should you become a resident of another state after purchasing a

lifetime permit, your privilege is still retained in Missouri. In other

words, if you become a resident of Illinois and you have a lifetime

fishing permit, you can still come back to Missouri and fish on your

card. This does not give you resident privileges for other permits

though. Any permits purchased in Missouri after becoming a non-resident

would be at the non-resident price. Once you get your application, all

this information is on the back.

Then I kindly thanked the lady for her time.

Sound like a no-lose situation. No more yrly permits, no more trout stamps, helluva deal.. I just turned 30, so I will have to pay $350. At the current price of $12, it will pay for itself by the time I turn 59. I don't think it will stay at $12, so I figure I will come out ahead.....

Hell, I might even buy my 17 month old boy one too. Only $275. Image Image

I just got back $250 from a cancelled lifetime membership to B.A.S.S.(what a joke), so I'm using that to go towards the permit. Had to wait till the 11th of this month to put me into the cheaper price bracket.. hahaha

Us old Image uhhh. I mean old guys leaning on the back side of fifty something can get those lifetime permits at pretty reasonable prices. Even though you don't have to have one at sixty-something, it still adds up when you spend the bucks for small game, fishing, trout, deer tags, turkey tags, and archery for same. Saves a trip to the sporting goods counter at Wally World, too.

65 is the cut off for fishing permits, but you still have to buy the extra, Trout, border lakes and such.
For someone 30 its a bargain.
