I know this sounds like a bunch of chit,but if you have 10 licence cards and get them wet,its not a bad idea.I have 9 paper cards(licence) made of paper and when they get wet I have to get new ones.This is sickening to say the least and with this many licences your wallet is stuffed!
I am sick of the cheap paper cards,its about time they came up with a half decent idea.
Yeah, a plastic card is fine but the orange hunter safety card is laminated anyway. The hunting license is paper so you have to protect that anyway. Changing the card is not the big problem... having to renew it every five years at a fee is. I have a Restricted Firearms PAL that costs me $80 every five years as it is. All this extra money and I'm feeling no more or less safe than before. Can't even buy a box of ammo without searching my wallet for a silly card.
From the books that I have read, there is a lot of importance in knowing every nook and cranny of your hunting territory as well as the animal that you are hunting. So scouting as much as possible, just walking the land, will give you a good idea of what's around the corner or what's on the other side of a hill. Which can be very beneficial.
