    How did you apply for 3-200-8? Was it an amendment from one you currently have or a new application? It took several weeks to months depending on what their work load was for the ones I received.

    I had to contact someone on the West Coast to get them to kick me up the line to someone in DC because the SE office would not respond to my calls or emails. During the govt shutdown a bunch of their employees decided to retire. My permit had been issued but was sitting on a retiree's desk. I applied in Nov. Finally got it in June. It was issued in January!

    You should be talking to the Atlanta Georgia office. You can print out the form, fill it out and send it in to that address in Georgia. I think it's $150. If it's a first time issue it'll take a couple to a few months to get it.

    WOW! $150.00 for this permit. Is that per year? Last time I got one (1985, when I thought I was going to go into the business) I think it was free. The government wants to make a profit on anything and everthing these days I guess.

    They are renewable every 5 years. The last one I purchased was $100. The cost of not having one would be substantial if you have over the possession limit on ducks in your freezer.
