2017 LICENSE APPLICATION SERVICE S TA F F A R T I C L E SHANDI MARTINEZ LICENSE APPLICATION SERVICE MANAGER O ver the past 20 years, the Huntin’ Fool License Application Service has boasted a phenomenal track record for drawing exceptional tags for our clients. As Huntin’ Fool continues to grow and progress, the License Application Service is following in this trend and implementing new initiatives to help even more of our clients draw the tags that our service is known for. For the first time in the history of Huntin’ Fool, we are giving away a hunt to License Application clients only. Anyone who renews their applications or joins our License Application Service by January 6 th will be entered into a drawing for a New Mexico muzzleloader elk hunt. This is a five-day, fully-guided hunt with Jeff Lester and Hunt Hard Outfitters that includes a unit wide landowner tag. This drawing will have great odds since it is limited to License Application clients and only those who get their information in early. If you’re considering signing up for our service this year, do it before January 6 th and you could have a hunt booked before any New Mexico applications are even due. We are also starting a License Application referral program. When you refer a new client to our Service, you will get $100 off of our processing fees for the first year, which can equal two free states. Your friends can either sign up and tell us that you referred them, or you can give us their contact information and we’ll take care of the rest. 22 Another change I am excited to announce is a drop in our prices for our raffle tag program. Our clients have had amazing success applying for state raffles, and we want more of our clients to be able to participate. We are now charging just $10 for each drawing we apply you for, regardless of how many tickets you are purchasing. We are currently the only service offering assistance with state raffle tags. If you have ever considered using an application service, or if you are currently using another service, give our service a try. We help our clients draw thousands of the most coveted and competitive tags in the world. Our clients choose Huntin’ Fool as their License Application Service provider because of our experience, research, record, and price. We offer more states and species than any other service as well as a very affordable raffle tag program. We will take care of all of the paperwork for you, and you will never have to worry about missing a deadline or applying incorrectly. We can pick your units for you based on your wants and needs, or you can tell us exactly where you want us to apply you. We have Professional Hunt Advisors who can give you advice on where to apply and what units to apply for, help you figure out a long-term and short-term application strategy, and give advice on gear lists, specific areas, etc. Our team will help you learn the best states, units, and areas for each species and your best options for obtaining a tag. If you draw a tag through our service, the tag is yours. You can go unguided if you’d like, or we can recommend some endorsed outfitters for you that we have researched and have deemed worthy to endorse. Huntin’ Fool also has an extensive Member Draw database. If you draw a tag through our service, we will provide you with a list of Huntin’ Fool members who have previously drawn and hunted your unit. These are members you can contact for firsthand information about your unit. This service has proven to be extremely valuable to our members over the years. We will also keep you organized, at least as far as hunting goes. We will look up your points every year and keep them on file for you. These will be included on your renewal form every year so you can use them to decide on your plan for the next year. We also post all of your state receipts to our website for you to access at any time. You won’t have to worry about draw results either as we look them up for you and will contact you if you draw a tag. It’s always a good day for me when I get to tell someone they drew a tag they have been trying to draw for years. If you are new to the game, we would be happy to walk you through some options and give you an estimate of the upfront costs and the out-of-pocket costs for the states you are applying in. We can help you tailor your strategy to your budget so that you don’t end up in the doghouse come June. This has also been very helpful for those thinking about switching from another service. We can easily show you the cost difference of using our service versus another application service. We have been able to save our clients hundreds of dollars, even if another service was floating their tag fees. Several services would have you believe they are floating your tag fees in every state, but only 6 out of the 21 states we cover actually require the tag fees up front. I’ve been applying people for hunts for 10 years now, and I still love everything about my job. Feel free to give me a call with any questions you have. I would love to talk to you!
