Disabled vets save on fishing licenses

You can save money on a Utah fishing license if you've been injured while serving in the armed forces.

To show its appreciation for the sacrifice you've made, the Division of Wildlife Resources is offering discounted fishing licenses to Utah veterans who have disabilities.

You can buy a discounted license for $21. The license is good for 365 days from the day you buy it.

A 365-day fishing license in Utah usually costs $26.

To buy a discounted license, you must have a service-connected disability rating of 40 percent or greater. If you qualify, simply bring to a DWR office the verification of service connected disability documentation that the Department of Veterans Affairs issued to you.

You can buy a discounted license at DWR offices in Ogden, Salt Lake City, Springville, Vernal, Price and Cedar City.

Jim Karpowitz, director of the DWR, says the agency's staff members appreciate the sacrifice veterans have made for them. "This is one way for us to say thanks," he says.

For more information, call the nearest Division of Wildlife Resources office, or the DWR's Salt Lake City office at 801-538-4700.
