While I’m not one to cry “conspiracy” at the drop of a hat, maybe the
Oregon Department of fish & Wildlife has stumbled upon a novel method of raising additional funds. Seems that a new hunting and fishing license design adopted by the department this year disappears in a few weeks if placed in a plastic license holder. So far the ODFW has only issues a press release that suggests
…carrying the license…in your wallet as you would a receipt or using a paper or Tyvek license holder.
Upside for the ODFW: Oregon hunters and anglers left with a blank license will have to pay another $6.50 for a replacement.
