A new type of game license, issued for the first time in late 1945, will be available again this year. This “sportsman license” is a combined permit for an individual fishing, small and big game, hunting and trapping. The fee is $5, but the purchaser is privileged to pay any additional sum as evidence of his desire to support the state’s conservation program. A letter of acknowledgment will be sent by L.E. Fiero, game and fish director, to each contributor thanking him for the gift.
