Now, when you go to purchase your license, it'll cost the same for the "Deer/Turkey Hunter" package (23 + 23).
Want the traditional Deer/Turkey/Bear? $195...nice.
What a racket....
IF this revenue gain ties in with some positive changes for hunters/hunter opportunities, say for example, a spring archery bear season and/or allowing baited bear stands, it might be a positive move.
Otherwise, it's just a "new tax".
The next step will be the standard deer hunter package will only come with 1 deer tag ... you will have to buy a special tag to get the other 5 tags.
The sad thing is, after waterfowl, state & Federal forest stamps, my license cost 208 dollars !!!!!
