This is a correction for an assertion made in another thread:

For active duty military personnel, regardless of where they are stationed, the license fee in Texas is that of a Texas resident. That's full time active duty in the Guard, Reserve and the Service Academies as well as the "regular" folks.

Under-17s from out of state also pay at resident rates.

Art - Thanks for the info, I didn't know that. The only time I hunted Texas while on Active Duty was when I was stationed there. When I was stationed in other states, I could hunt the state I was stationed in at the time as a resident and Oregon as a resident, since that was my home of record when I went on AD. Not always practical to fly back to OR to hunt, but at least I could if I wanted to.

Now if Texas would extend that to us geezer military retirees, I would be there in a heart beat!!

Seems to me that active duty military personnel should be given a FREE LICENSE as a pitiful gratuity for risking their lives so that the rest of us Americans can enjoy the RKBA and hunt. I think that hunter safety instructors should get the freebie too. CB.
