After this hunting season I had misplaced my Card for a while. I contacted F & G and it is pretty easy to get a replacement card for $5, so that wasn't an issue. What I found interesting is that about 15-20 years ago the State decided to issue new cards and new numbers, but our old cards are still valid. I am not sure if I was asleep then, or what, but I don't remember this and I was never issued a new card. My old card was issued to me by AkNimrod, aka Pat McCabe, and it is of sentimental value to me. My old number works for drawing permits, so I think I will keep it! The Palmer F & G folks were great to talk to and very helpful. I am glad I found my card, it was hidden in plain sight on my home office desk!
