The lifetime license is only discounted at 50% for a limited time, so it will make a perfect Christmas gift for any child who loves the outdoors.
The liec can be purhased at https://gooutdoorsflorida.com/ however if you have a Bass Pro Shop or a local tax collectors office near you call and see if they have them. Tax collectors should, but they might need to make an appointment, and some of them are busy. Bass Pro Shop might be able to sell you them as well. Walmart can be a bit of a pain to deal with.
