License fee is increasing from $20.00 up to $25.00. Second rod stamp will go to $5.00. The
Habitat Stamp will be $5.00. There is also a new Wildlife Management Educational Fund
fee of $.75. This on top of the $.25 Search and Rescue fee will bring the total for an annual
2 rod license to $36.00. Still a bargain for the days of enjoyment it provides.
Spoke with a senior wildlife officer and he said we need to keep an eye on the division of wildlife and how they spend our money. A major push is on by the big game and bird guys for wildlife habbitat and land. He mentioned that a few folks are forgetting that FISH are also wildlife. We pay more in fees than hunters do at this time. So keep an eye out and request an annual report every once in awhile to let them know we are looking at them.
