TPWD Draws First of Three Lifetime License Winners

AUSTIN – To say Joanne Stirt loves to fish would be an understatement. As the first winner of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Lifetime License Drawing this fall, the Bandera outdoors enthusiast can start spending more time and money on her favorite pursuit each year.

“We’ve had a deer lease for about 23 years and I go out there every year,” says Stirt, who entered the drawing for $5 and won an $1,800 Lifetime Super Combo hunting and fishing license. “But, I got into fishing the last couple of years and just love it. We go fishing in the bay, saltwater fishing, but we also bought a place on Falcon Lake and go bass fishing from dawn to dark. Honestly, I would rather do that than eat.”

There is still a chance for two more lucky winners of an $1,800 Lifetime Super Combo license this fall and those who entered prior to the first drawing are still eligible. The next two winners will be drawn Nov. 1 and Dec. 1.

Entries for the drawing cost $5 each and may be added to yearly license purchases at retailers, by phone 1-800-895-4248 and online at www.tpwd.texas.gov/licensedraw .There is no limit on the number of entries that may be purchased.

Proceeds from entries go toward TPWD conservation efforts that will help keep hunting and fishing great in Texas.
