According to the AP in an article located on FoxNews Detroit the Michigan House has already paved the way for increased fees. When combined wiht the shortage of ammo, ammo price increases and higher gas costs this is setting the stage for one of the most expensive hunting seasons on record.
There is some good news in this bill though:
- The current 227 different types of licenses and fees will be reduced to 40
- Out of state hunters will be charged drastically more then in State in some cases 10X the amount
- In State Season passes are reduced $3 but out of State has been increased $23
- $20 Million is expected to be raised for fisheries and wildlife programs
The bill has been handed over to the GOP Senate and will be voted on soon. What are your thoughts on these changes?
