Every father should be required to buy a lifetime license for thier kid when it is born...It is so much cheaper. I bought one for my son when he was born in SC. We later moved to NC and I bought him another. Now I live in Georgia and he fishes with me alot, but I can't afford the lifetime now. So, if you have the spare change, buy your kids a lifetime when they are born. It will be one of the best deals you will get in a lifetime. I still have land in SC and NC and hunt and fish there as well.
