The law defines “disabled veteran” as a resident who either:
• has been determined by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs to be permanently and totally disabled as a result of military service and entitled to veterans’ benefits at the 100-percent rate, for a disability other than blindness; or
• is rated by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs as individually unemployable.
Licenses will be available at the agents and online at the same time that the regularly priced items go on sale throughout the year. Some licenses become available for sale later in the year depending on the sporting season openers and leftover or over-the-counter quantities.
Legally blind anglers who are not disabled veterans can still receive their fishing licenses at the senior rates.
