Minn. Senate OKs hunting and fishing fee hikes
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — 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.
Under the bill, a one-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 bill also allows for wolf hunting in the state after the species came off the endangered species list in January.
