FRANKFORT, Ky. - Friends and family can now give the gift of hunting and fishing for Christmas or special occasions.
The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources has announced its new gift certificate program just in time for the upcoming holidays. Shoppers can go online to the department's website at fw.ky.gov and use a credit card to buy a gift certificate for a friend or loved one.
The certificate can be redeemed online to purchase hunting and fishing licenses or permits, or subscribe to the department's award-winning magazine, Kentucky Afield.
A special wizard program assists shoppers with determining the cost of individual licenses and permits. Shoppers simply click a box for each license or permit sought and the program will automatically total the cost.
Shoppers only need to supply the name of the person receiving the certificate. Personal information of the recipient is not needed for the certificate. Buyers can print out a certificate themselves to give to a person, or have it sent in an email to the lucky person. A special feature allows shoppers to time the email notice-delivering it, for example, on Christmas Day, no matter when it was purchased.
Gift recipients receive a special code that they can use to make purchases on the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife website. Since the certificate is good for five years from the date of purchase, any unspent money on the certificate can be used toward the purchase of licenses in the future.
A Kentucky Fish and Wildlife gift certificate is perfect for grandparents looking for that ideal present for their grandkids, or for shoppers who don't want to deal with the hassle of standing in line at the store to buy a gift card.
