    I just bought my fifth state license of the year (I also have one Canadian province license). Washington, Oregon, Montana, Utah and British Columbia are all in the bag, and Idaho just joined the ranks. Heading to the Idaho panhandle next week (North Fork Clearwater & Kelly Creek) for a week of chasing cutthroat.

    I'm curious who on this forum has multiple states license (annual or day/week use) and how many you will have. Who has the most states/provinces for the year?

    Just wa and Oregon, plus a tribal permit. It was interesting getting my oregon license. I found out someone had been using my name to get a license in the mid nineties. It's weird finding out someone has been impersonating you.

    6 for me right now. It should have been 10 or more already but I had to cancel some trips because of health issues, including a trip to Europe.

    Only two are annual, WA & Colville, the others are NV, MT, CA & Pyramid Tribal..

    Wow, it's been awhile for me. Usually I'll have 2 per year (sometimes 3 if I do a BC trip). But really I mostly have the WA one only anymore. Mostly because of my work with PHWFF. If I do go out of state for them, I can buddy under the group trip permit most states issue for groups like ours.

    BUT, when I was married to my ex. I think I had between 10-20 out of state licenses per year. Depending on our travels. She worked for the airlines, so was flying quite a bit. Had all the midwest states, some SW, and quite a few eastern seaboard ones. Can actually say I LOVE not having multiple licenses each year. :)

    WA and BC. Wish I made it to OR enough to justify. But that's a long drive and I usually end up visiting family with my time when I do make it down.

    Always just WA and MT (my home away from home). I did buy a 5 day ID, and couples days in OR...may end up with a 2 day CA...much as it pains me.

    WA is my only annual. I usually end up with a daily CO lisence (lots of family there) and this year I also got NM (in-laws). I've had a daily or weekly Mat and ID in the past, but not this year.
