CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Stumped by what to get that newborn baby? New Hampshire Fish and Game officials have come to the rescue.

Fish and Game officials are offering a lifetime, combined hunting and fishing license that can be purchased for those under a year old.

The cost of $300 - plus a fee of $4.50 - buys a certificate good for a lifetime of hunting and fishing licenses once the recipient turns 16. Licenses are not required for those under age 16.

Recipients must take a hunter education course before redeeming the hunting license.

Officials say the “Newborn Lifetime Combination Hunting and Fishing License” is a chance to provide children under one-year-old who are New Hampshire residents with perpetual access to hunting and fishing adventures.

The fishing license is good for freshwater fishing only.

Purchasers must provide a copy of the child’s birth certificate and their driver’s license to prove residency.

Officials bill the lifetime licenses as “the best baby gift ever for the outdoors family.”

An annual, combined hunting and freshwater fishing license currently sells for $46.
