For all of you that get your out of state Alabama Fishing Lic. it does not go for a year anymore it goes fromthe time of purchase to August . I bought one onlineDecember 31 2007 and expires on 8/31/08 . Made a few phone calls as this kinda pissed me off but was explained to me the way it works. Although I had to go to 5 different people to find out the reason why. Maybe Florida should do the same and jack it up about 3 times the amount.
