Hunting & Fishing Fees 24 Apr 12

The Minnesota Senate has voted to raise fees for hunting and fishing licenses. The Senate has approved a game and fish bill 36-30 that includes the fee hikes. The bill now goes back to the House, which passed it earlier without the fee increases. Bill Co-Author Senator Gary Dahms of Redwood Falls says it’s something that just needs to be done. Under the bill, a 1-year fishing license for an adult resident would go from $17 to $22. A deer hunting license for residents would be bumped from $26 to $30. Other fees would increase by similar amounts. The fees were last raised in 2001.
