Makes me pay $3.00 to print my new $135.00 Sportman's License when SC sends me FREE email confirmation immediately on a $35 Non-Resident Saltwater license.......surely it's not about gouging is it?

I just took a picture on my iPhone of the license IF I ever get checked which I might add I have NEVER been checked on the Clinch anyway.

Not about gouging, but the total overthrow of the national economy and stealing the joy from all the Sportsmen of Tennessee!

Or it could be the service fees associated with making online license purchases that does not actually go to the TWRA at all.

After my last license purchase at Walmart, I gladly pay the fee. They wasted 20 minutes of my life that I'll never get back.

The $3.00 goes to the vendor and not TWRA. It is their service charge for handling the credit card transaction that they get billed for by the credit card company.

I guess I did not buy my original lisc on the internet but I print mine many time on there as I lose them. That is free. The convience charge is passed on in a lot of things that you use internet to pay for govt things. The birth cert and others.

Figured it, but that is a steep charge to send an email....I would look for a new vendor as that is the steepest charge I have run across for confirmation......

The charge is for the 3-4 per cent the credit card company charges the vendor for processing the payment.

My IL deer tags cost me an extra $13.25. The $3.00 is well within line for what states are charging.

That money goes to help with the restocking and relocation of coyotes, red deer and rattlesnakes. It is well worth it.

Yes I have to come clean here. The agency is funding a Swiss bank account $3 at a time. Now you've foiled their plan and posted it publicly.

Geez- if I send you $3 which will nearly pay for a whole gallon of gas, will you stop whining? Come on, seriously it's three dollars ya big baby. Lol.

Insert fiddle playing here--->

But but.....ok you got me! :)

I'm really liking the coyote program. Since they started putting out medicated bait to vaccinate for lepto, parvo, and crotch lice, the litter sizes have doubled in Henry County.
