    CPT Brad hit it on the nose. You can legally change your state of residence and become a legal resident of the state you are in so you can get resident tags instead of the visitor ones which are probably a lot more expensive.

    It depends on the state, I know Kansas allows out of state students to obtain in state liscenses as long as they have proof that they are in college ie your student id card should work. I would definately go that route before I went to the trouble of changing my state of residence.

    No because you have to live there for a certain amount of time in order to become a resident.

    Your best bet is to look up the DNR or Dept of Game and Fish website for the state you're college is in to see what they say. Usually getting a DL from that state for 30 - 90 days establishes residency. The website should tell you what establishes residency and what a non-resident license costs. If you do this and still intend on hunting in the state you're from you'll need to weigh the costs of non-resident licenses there as well. Some states honor a lifetime license if you move to a different state.

    I know when i went to college my roomate was from out of state. All he had to do was change his drivers licence and he was able to get a resident fishing licence.

    But before you do that check the price difference between resident and non-resident. In some states its not that bad, and it would not warrent the hassle of the DMV.

    Here's a answer and I don't know if its the right one. you can get an appartment and change state of residence with a billing address and utility bill in your name you can go get a license and vholla your a resident.

    As I am getting ready to move out of state for college, I wanted to know if I would be able to obtain a resident hunting/fishing license since I would be attending a school in the state. If not, do you think it would be worth the money to pay such high fees to enjoy my favorite pastime?
