State approves license fee increases

-A A +A

The higher costs are seen as needed to offset an expected $4.2 million budget gap.

By Landmark News Service

Hunters and anglers will be paying more to help the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries bridge the gap in a budget shortfall the agency expects to face in coming years.

Outdoors enthusiasts who take advantage of some DGIF facilities and property will also pay more — even if they don't fish, hunt or have a registered boat.

In a meeting Tuesday, the department's board voted to increase the cost of a number of fishing and hunting licenses and to implement a user fee at state wildlife management areas and department-owned lakes.
