Default Bummer! I'm missing my buck permit

I was issued 2 permits by IL DNR. One an antlerless-only and one an either sex. They have always came same day in mail, in seperate envelopes. This year? One envelope. I figured maybe they had gotten smart and were saving $ by using one envelope. Nope. I just got one permit and it was the antlerless-only. I waited a while to see if it would come but it hasn't so I'll have to pay them additional money to get another permit re-issued.

I hunted it as a non resident a couple of times. Expensive place to hunt with some weird rules for applying for tags. Nice deer though.

Michigan is so easy, as an really old fart I walk into LGS, wal mart Meijer's hardware store hand them my drivers license tell them I want a combo (2 buck tags) fire arm deer license. Pay my senior $28.00 and walk out the door. My area has a 5 doe a day limit over the counter license's also same method, but you have to do it every day till you get all you want.

Vermont is real easy especially for someone over 64. A one time fee of 50 bucks buys you a lifetime hunting and fishing tag with all the appropriate tags like bear, deer, small game, archery, ML, and turkey. Those tag fees normally are around $100 for each year. The only added tag fee is if someone wants an additional archery tag. On Jan 1 each year you go to the VT F&W department web site put in your custom number, hit renew (all at no charge) and print and it all comes out on a sheet of paper. I keep a copy in the truck, boat and one in my wallet.

Yes it is but does come at an indirect cost. Vermont is a very expensive state to call home. But home is where it is at least for me. I love Vermont just the way it is.

The additional money is $3 so it isn't like it's a crime. I do feel that it is their responsibiblity to get it to me. Probably lost in the USPS system somehow is my guess.
