I asked why and was told that some kids were buying stamps (which makes zero sense). I then asked what if I didn't have a hunting license and the clerk told me that he couldn't sell me a migratory bird license. I said what if I wanted to collect them and he told me he couldn't sell it to me unless I had a hunting license.

    I took out my outdoors card. He looked at the front (didn't validate if my small game license was valid or not) and handed the card back to me. I wonder what the rational behind this was and if this is a province or country wide policy or was he just blowing smoke.

    Was this at the post office or an outlet?
    Suspect this was an outlet as explained to me their training is received online and sometimes they just don't get it right. Best thing to do is to call the post office they'll send a supervisor to straighten them out might not help you out but it'll help the next guy. Had to do it once before when my local outlet insisted on cancelling the stamp instead of the area marked postal stamp here.
    Now it may also just be a policy as when I purchased my permit the clerk informed me they received limited permits this year about half the usual so it may be an effort to get them in the hands of hunters preferentially. On a side note always felt purchase of the permit should come with the verification of small game license.

    I give mine away if someone wants them. I probably should have kept them all, as I have never missed a year. I'd have like 48 of them by now.

    It was a Canada Post inside a Shopper's Drug Mart so I suppose it would be an outlet. I will call CP and let them know.

    About your point per verification, I don't think a verification is needed. There are plenty of people buy this license for reasons other than hunting. As an effort to get them into the hands of hunters, the reason I was given was that last year some kids bought the stamps and got into trouble (not sure why that had any bearing about the point of sale) so they brought in this policy to stop that. The bullcrap radar pinged on that one.

    Thought it was implied you don't need to show your hunting license to buy the permit.
    Just my opinion a query for the reason of purchase by the clerk is it for collection or hunting not a bad idea. If its to go hunting show an appropriated small game.
    Kind of like the questions asked on the permit
    Did you hunt migratory last year?
    Did you buy a permit?

    I got that implication and from your post I took that in your opinion a small game hunting license validation is a good idea. I am disagreeing with your opinion and giving a reason why I don't think a validation is necessary.

    I picked my stamp up yesterday at the post office. No questions asked in and out in two minutes. He told me to fill it out when I got home and mail it in.

    I picked mine up today. The clerk filled out all the questions on the main copy,stamped it,separated the copies and handed the rest to me. Debit card,easy peasy.
