What age is a Senior Citizen? Does Bass Pro, Cabela, L.L. Beam and other Sportsmen stores give seniors a break?

    A bit off subject but AARP apparently think 50 is my magical number. I get enough crap from them to have fire starter for life!

There isn't much offered besides that. I believe, but could be wrong, that all veterans can get free passes to any state park facility or boat launch that charges fees, and the state does offer two "Free Fishing Weekends" every year, no licenses required for anybody on both Saturday and Sunday. One of them, though, is in mid-November, hardly the time when most people can or will take advantage.
      Matt, thats terrible. If any political laws and rules can beat out New Jersey for being cheap, it would be New York.

        License fees are half price at 65 :-(

          NYC and Long Island should not be part of the state; it's night and day between down there and up here. Probably rural Californians say the same thing about Los Angeles, Illinoisans about Chicago, etc. Anyway, on the plus side, our season lengths are very generous and there's a ton of state forest and public-access fishing streams.

            Gerg Sir, I get enough to start both of our fires at 30 years old. Absolutely ridiculous.

              Upstate NY lives for NYC. They send them power and water plus all their taxes to support the 30% that are on welfare.

                How can a State charge for a fishing license for fishing in salt water ??

                  I thought I was being funny when I said something to my sister on her 45th birthday about AARP, then she told me that she'd been getting stuff from them for the past five or six years. I'm 45 now and haven't gotten anything yet -- but with the way the stores keep track of you now ("Do you have your Bonus Card, sir?"), I'm sure the mailings will begin right after my first purchase of Preparation H, whenever that happens.

                    In AL, if you're 65, you don't have to buy hunting or fishing license. I like the senior coffee at McD's.

                      I went in KFC for lunch after a service call and KFC girl gave me a 10% senior discount.
                      It must be my gray hair??

                            Never joined AARP as I don't think they represent seriors very well, IMO.
