Default Military Disabled hunter licenses

Does anyone know of a list somewhere that shows all the states offering discounted licenses and tags to disabled Veterans?

No I have not seen a list kept anywhere. Maybe a hunting organization that specializes in disabled veteran hunters might but the list would have to be updated annually. Just pick the states you are interested in going to and take a look at their site.

Don't know of any lists but here is PA's law regaurding disabled veteran licenses. If you have any questions call 717-787-4259 and then press 1 when prompted. Here is the law: (b) Disabled veterans.--


(1) Any resident disabled veteran who has a disability incurred in any war or armed conflict which consists of the loss of one or more limbs, or the loss of the use of one or more limbs, or who is 100% disabled as certified by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, and who meets all other qualifications of this title and is otherwise mentally and physically fit, shall be issued a free regular hunting or furtaking license upon application to the commission or a county treasurer.
(1.1) Any disabled veteran who has a disability incurred in any war or armed conflict and possesses a disability rating between 60% and 99% as certified by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs and who meets all other qualifications of this act and is otherwise mentally and physically fit shall be issued a resident hunting or furtaking license at the cost of $1 upon application to the commission or a county treasurer.
(2) The application for the issuance of a license under paragraph (1) or (1.1) shall, in addition to the other information required by the commission, contain a statement that the applicant is a war or armed conflict veteran and that the qualifying disability was service incurred.
(3) The issuing agent or the commission may require the production of the discharge papers of the applicant.
(4) If a disabled veteran who qualifies for issuance of a license under paragraph (1) presents documentation to show that the qualifying disability is permanent, the county treasurer shall issue the disabled veteran a lifetime hunting or furtaking license.
(5) In a county where there is no county treasurer by virtue of a home rule charter or optional plan of government, the county official who performs the functions of a county treasurer and who has been designated an issuing agent by the commission shall issue licenses under this subsection.
(b.1) Prisoners of war.--A former prisoner of war shall be entitled to purchase a resident hunting license at the cost of $1 plus the current issuing fee upon application to the commission. An application under this subsection shall contain the same information as is required for other resident hunting license applications. As used in this subsection, the term "former prisoner of war" means an individual who was imprisoned by enemy forces while in the service of the armed forces of the United States as certified by the appropriate branch of the armed forces

I know Montana offers a program where anyone can donate their permits/tags to former service members, either residents or non residents can do this, check it out on Montana FWP site if you or anyone is interested.

I know Texas gives disabled vets both resident and non resident with 50% or more rating their big game hunting package. I found it a while back while looking at the license cost

Our state (PA) offers discounted licenses, but NOT to non-residents.
