just left cabelas. The state of IL, in their infinite wisdom has decided to upgrade the printers. Only problem is they aren't working. Cabelas said they got the new printers 3 weeks ago and haven't been able to sell a single fishing license.

I always buy my licenses online. I print 3 copies so I always have one with me.

I bought a lifetime Illinois license for myself and my wife in 1992, it was $200 each back then but I never have to buy a license anymore unless it is for Lake Michigan or a trout stamp. For those of you who are younger in their 20's, 30's, it may be worth looking into this as it is still available. Lifetime Illinois resident license is $435 dollars and yearly licenses never go down in price. Just a thought.

It's $15 for a yearly license.  It'll take you 30 years at the current price to break even. Most of us won't be living in this broken state by then.

Like I mentioned, it is probably for a 20 or 30 year old. I bought mine when licenses were $9.00 (I'm not sure what they were exactly in 1992. But if you figure licenses go up every year, in 10 years, they will probably be $20/year or more.  You are probably right in regards to living in IL. I intend to move in 6 years, so my license won't be any good, but it has paid for itself.

Any luck recently (beside the GIANT)? Anyone got a pattern down in northern Illinois? I know it’s still cold but I was able to get out and “test” the new gear. I got break next week so I’ll be out there a lot.
