Urgent press release from Massoutdoors.

Just in time to take more of your money, this is a recession/depression after all, your overlords have enacted a $3.00 transaction fee at the Mass Outdoors website. Please buy/renew all licenses and registrations online to better serve our profit margin ummm....you our customers.

Why we're doing this.
Our research has shown that in order to keep increasing our pay and benefits we need to take more of your money. Further research has shown that if you don't like it you can suck it.

Thank you,
Your friends at mass outdoors

The FEE IS REAL, the press release is fake, they would never be this honest.

Have you thanked your Overlords today?

But it all makes perfect sense - we have to pay them $3 in order to be able to pay them...

I wonder if they were laughing at us when they came up with the idea. Pretty soon there will be a transaction fee for your taxes!

New Year, New fees, still taking your money. When can I purchase my 2011 Massachusetts Fishing, Hunting, or Sporting License or Recreational Lobster Permit online?The Department of Fish & Game is replacing its MassOutdoors online licensing system with a new system called MassFishHunt. Through this new system you can now purchase Massachusetts Fishing, Hunting, and Sporting Licenses from the Division of Fisheries & Wildlife and Recreational Lobster Permits and Saltwater Fishing Permits from the Division of Marine Fisheries for the 2011 calendar year. Will I be able to renew my motorboat, ATV, and snowmobile registrations via MassFishHunt?No. You must continue to use MassOutdoors to register motorboats, ATVs, and snowmobiles with the Office of Law Enforcement (Environmental Police).
MassFishHunt customers are charged a convenience fee by Active Outdoors, the provider of this electronic licensing service. Its convenience fee consists of a $1.50 service charge for each applicable license or permit purchased by the customer, plus an associated 3% internet handling charge on the total transaction amount. The Active Outdoors convenience fee will be clearly identified and itemized in your Shopping Cart prior to the processing of your payment.

Your $10.00 saltwater license will cost you $11.85.
10 license
1.50 fee
3% convenience fee based on 11.50

and soon no way to avoid the 3% fee.

For those of you who are getting your license for free because of age you will still be paying the convenience fee.

What about people 60 and older?
People 60 and older must obtain a permit but the permit is free for these individuals (although a small fee will be charged by the vendor to process the permit through the internet).

finally found the statement that shows there will be no escaping the 3% "convenience fee"

After setting up electronic license sales at DFW and DMF offices, Active Outdoors will begin to make electronic license sales available at retail stores, sporting goods stores, bait and tackle shops, and city and town halls. License buyers will still be able to purchase the traditional paper hunting, trapping, and freshwater fishing paper licenses and stamps at license vendors throughout the state until the switch is made to an entirely electronic system.
