Kansas: Seniors may have to pay hunting, fishing fees
 
 Hunting, fishing and enjoying state parks might cost senior citizens more if the Legislature approves a request from the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism to end special fees and exemptions for residents 65 years and older.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Before too many people on here get their panties in a twist about this, let me explain it a little more.....
 
KY did the same thing a few years back.  Used to be, seniors got a free license, but had to buy all of the tags (ex: turkey & deer).  They changed to where seniors purchase a $5 combination hunting/fishing license instead of a free license, and all of their tags are included.  They did this for 2 reasons.  One was to track the number of people there actually were, and two, it was so they could receive the $5 matching funds from the USFWS.  $5 is not going to break ANYONE and helps the KDFWR get more federal money they previously couldn't with free licenses.  Fish & Wildlife agencies only receive the matching funds on licenses, not tags.  It works out to be a heck of a lot cheaper for the seniors.  O0
 
Landowners and their dependant children, hunting on their own land, do not need any licenses or tags.  Tenants farmers and their dependant children, hunting on land they reside on and work, are also exempt from the license/tags.
