Did Not Receive License Yet

Post By: johnski      Posted: 4/10/2020 6:01:49 PM     Points: 6374    
I got my wife and my fishing licenses early. Two daughters did not yet get them due to delays due to COVID. CPW says use the Temporary Authorization Number (TAN) that was sent in my email confirmattion. I recieved ONLY one confirmation, so one daughter cannot fish unless she gets the TAN? I tried calling CPW but it is pm on Good Friday so no luck. Is there anyplace in her account that shows the TAN? I printed off stuff that shows she bought the licence, but without the TAN, I would not my daughter to get a ticket. Any thoughts....

I know its too late but I took photos of our receipts in case the email didnt work. My son needed a youth licence and that sucked. I was in cpws system he wasnt. I couldnt buy his youth licence under my account because Im not 16 so we had to create an account for him.

Do you have separate accounts for each daughter, or did you receive one receipt for both licenses? I would use the TAN number you were sent, and if there were an issue, Iím sure CPW has that information on file for both licenses. My guess is the other license will arrive soon.

Go fish! If they get stopped show the ranger your old license and tell the ranger about going online and getting just one TAN # . . .they will sort it out.

I'm with hp. You bought your license for the year. How often do you get checked? Personally maybe once a year and I fish every weekend. I wouldn't worry about it.

I just received mine in the mail today. I renewed it on the 26th of March I believe.

I was told a few days ago from a ranger at Boyd that the fishing licenses got extended till the end of April 4/30.

A10flyer . . . .there is a small chance as I worked at "All Pro Fish N Sport" back in the day.I don't go to Chatty very often these days . . .I'm more likely to be found at C.C. or Aurora.

So I solved the dilema. I contacted my internet company and they had a greymail file I had never seen and it has been filtering out the truly bad (Please send me $300 so I can send you the $1.5 million..etc). BUT, it was also filtering out legitimate email, like, the CPW confirmation for my daughter. I was irate! Anyway, there was the daughters confirmation and so I got the TAN, and she is good to go. But probably don't need it anyway since it is the end of the world! Ha.
