Not sure what state you reside in, but in my Army career I saw several states that allowed a service member to hunt without purchasing a license when he/she was on official leave (with valid leave form). Also, I believe you are eligible to purchase an in-state license in your home of record (state you entered Army from) usually as well as the state you reside/are stationed in (Alaska rules may differ).

I know I'm prolly prejudiced, but I thought I did do something that might warrant a free license everywhere. Silly me...lol.

It's all good!

Thanks!!

Service men and women always get my full thanks and admiration. :thumbup:
Thank you HM!!

I remember my dad not being exactly enthused when he found out I had joined the Army. He was career Navy during the Vietnam era and actually got spat upon going through airports in uniform.

I am glad that most of America has finally realized it's not the folks in uniform that are the bad guys. We (military) only do what our civilian leaders tell those in the Pentagon to do.

Again, heartfelt thanks . . .

Welcome to the Army! I've recently hit my eleven year mark and hopefully by the grace of God, I can make it to twenty. I'm not sure about hunting, but in Tennessee anyone on active duty, possessing a DA 31 (Leave and Pass form) doesn't have to buy a fishing license. Maybe some of the older Bucks on this site can give you some more details on which States offer military privileges.
