I don’t like this marketing.

Postby Wildfowler » Wed Aug 14, 2019 6:17 am

They ought to make a first time adult license purchase for a “new” hunter available at a discount to encourage new recruits into the sport.

Or maybe have a “mentor” license. Example, a coworker of yours may express an interest in hunting but doesn’t have any equipment or know how and you agreed to take him a few times.

But whoever is in charge of their marketing please just figure out how much you need to charge for these license and get rid of the BS fees listed here. Just figure out what the price is and just put that down. I mean, the whole purchase price of a license is considered a “fee“. It’s starting to look like a damn phone bill where are you never know what it’s going to cost.

My only gripe is their marketing strategy.

Looks chincy to me. Just put one damn price down and don’t nickel and dime me to death.

That was my point. I always hated marketing. Hahah

Sportsmans License in TN is $165
I am interested in purchasing duck calls that were made by Mike McLemore. I am a family member and they have a sentimental value.

They actually have that, just maybe not at the discount you'd like.

And a full cost license is a few tanks of gas...Pretty dang good deal in my opinion. I spend more than all the license costs combined just APPLYING for an elk tag in one western state.

Well I’ll be dam’d. I didn’t know that? Thanks.

The price of a license is a bargain. And Im not complaining about any the total prices. It’s just that I’m complaining about the way they publish the pricing.

If they need add $1.29 extra for every license they sell just add that extra 1.29 into the price of the license and re-price the total cost for a particular license up front. Or better yet just round up to the next five dollar increment!!

We all understand inflation and how it affects consumer prices over time.

A hunting license is nothing more than a “fee” from the state to be able to hunt. So please leave off the extra “fee” as a second line item on the license bill and just give me one total price.

Thanks

Those fee's use to only apply as a "convenience fee" for online credit card processors and the third party handling it for renewals.

It didn't use to be applied to the mail in renewal, but the robots got butt-hurt because they weren't getting their nickel on crusty check writing mail it in old codgers like me and you, so that it would now would be "fair" to everyone, check writing mail in folks got to pay it too.

They dropped the "convenience" part of the fee, now it's just a damn fee, don't ask questions just pay it. :evil:

A couple of years ago the had a typo error, and if you hurried up and renewed by mail you could cheat the man out of three-fiddy cent. :lol:

I love waiting in line behind those little old ladies at the grocery store checkout who are sitting there with a big smile on their face, talking to the clerk, causing the clerk to have errors and watching every item scanned only to look flabbergasted when the clerk presents the total grocery bill to the lady.

Nothing else would have prompted her to go into her purse to begin looking for her checkbook so she can begin the check writing process any sooner.

Boy those were the good all days weren’t they? When everybody wrote checks and the clerks were friendly.


Haha
