The new lifetime senior hunting and fishing licenses are on sale.

Beginning January 1, 2012, West Virginians will be required to purchase the new one-time license when they turn 65 in order to hunt and fish in the state.

West Virginia Division of Natural Resources Director Frank Jezioro and Del. Larry Williams (D - Preston) will make the announcement that the licenses will be available later in the week, and will purchase the first two themselves to demonstrate how the process will work.

The new lifetime licenses will have a one-time cost of $25. Anyone who turns age 65 before January 1, 2012, will not be required to have the license, although they may purchase them voluntarily.

The addition of the senior license will allow WVDNR to qualify for federal funds that are based upon the number of licensed hunters in the state.
