When can I purchase my license for residents 65 and older?

I turn 65 in February. Do I have to wait until after my birthday to purchase a resident fishing and hunting license at the reduced senior amount, or can I purchase the license in January?

Answer: 

The senior license rates do not take effect until the day you actually turn age 65.
