I fully understand we all need a 5 day varmint license to sheep hunt. And I NOW understand that we need to stop off someplace along the way to get the license. I saw in another post where K-Mart and Wally World was mentioned. Thats all well and good but where are these places in relation to the airport? Most of us aren't from San Antonio. If some directions could be listed to direct people to either, it sure would be helpfull.

I am glad somebody brought this up as I ASSUMED (we all know what that means) the licenses would be issued at the ranch. Obviously that is NOT the case. Had I not read the post about the ranch not issueing licenses, myself and my buddy would of went without a lisense.

Is there anyplace in or near Barksdale that sells 5 day varmint licenses?

Don ;)
Shaky, The Wal-mart closest to the airport is at 8500 Jones-Maltsberger (210)377-1899. Its a 24 hour store. You take the airport exit going west, stay on the access road, turn left on Jones-Maltsberger road in San Antonio, go 1.5 blocks, you're there, 8500 Jones-Maltsberger. Its not but a mile or two total from the airport. They won't run out of liscenses, a computer prints them, someone is on duty till 11pm and starting at 7am in sports. If not, go to customer service and ask for Jeff, he can sell you a liscense at midnight if you want. One around the loop 410, just past I10 is 5025 NW Loop 410, (210)523-1091. Mapquest, the web site gives real good directions also, you can print that out, a detailed map. Please spread the word.

Here's the map.
