We at Unicoi Outfitters appreciate your comments on our store and do acknowledge that we often do run out of licenses and are not very prompt to restock.
License sales are very time consuming and, from a business standpoint not a very good way to tie up several hundred, if not thousands of dollars.
I believe we only make $0.50 per licence and the state has just recently ask dealers to pay additionally for shipping and handling.
I was not aware that liscenses were so hard to come by here in North Georgia.
We will make an extra effort to keep fishing liscenses in stock this fall,
as we plan to be open full time in, what is historically, the off-season.
We are glad to learn from your comments and hope to serve you better in the future!
