Conservation Patron Back Tags 1984 - 1998
Conservation Patron Licenses were introduced by the DNR in 1984 as a license to cover almost all outdoor sports including deer hunting, archery, fishing, trapping, sturgeon, all stamps and most applications. From 1984 - 1993 Conservation Patrons were issued a license and separate back tags for gun and archery.  Starting in 1994 gun and archery were combined into one back tag. In 1999 Conservation Patron Licenses were issued with the automated system, which continues today.
