Hunting/Fishing: Lifetime License Winner

Lifetime License

Enter to win a Lifetime License

This is Passport to Texas

Tim Brockway is an avid fisherman.

02—I fish about four days a week.

This competitive bass angler from Kaufman says he’d always buy an annual super combo license for hunting and fishing.

02—Because I think the money goes to a good cause.

The cause: conservation and habitat management in Texas. In 2010, Tim – a retired firefighter – spent five dollars online to enter Texas Parks and Wildlife’s twice-a-year Lifetime License drawing…and won.

25—I told the guys up at the fire station: Hey, I bought a five dollar chance to win a lifetime license. And I get a call a few months later – and I would have bet anything one of the guys got their wives to call and mess with me – and I actually didn’t believe them. I got off the phone and I called our local game warden that I know real well. He said: ‘Give me the phone number they called you from and the person’s name and I’ll check on it.’ Whenever I gave him the phone number and name, he said: ‘Congratulations; I know the person and I know the number.’

The win allows Tim to hunt and fish in Texas without buying another state license. Fees from every five dollar entry go toward conservation in Texas, which improves hunting, fishing and the outdoors for all.

09—I know your entries went up by about 30 right after I won mine from people at the fire station. I said: Come on guys; it’s five bucks. You spend that much on a hamburger. It’s well worth the chance.

The next drawing is December 30, 2014. Entries are online or at license retailers.

For Texas Parks and Wildlife…I’m Cecilia Nasti.
