From what i heard and read, won't be a fee for a few years, then it will just be an administration fee.
They are trying for the license in NJ for 2010
The license is a good thing, the problem is if we are charged, where does the money go?
It will if nobody stands against it. It wasn't so long ago that this same thing was proposed, and the campaign against was so loud and long that it ended up in the dumper. That's exactly where it belongs....it's gonna happen either way. That's New Jersey.
Here's what I pay for my paperwork for hunting.
All around sportsman lic-(includes firearm lic, Bow lic and fresh water fishing license. $72.50
State duck stamp- $5.00
Phes & Quail stamp- $40.00
Fed Duck stamp- $15.00
Extra buck permit shot gun $28.00
Extra doe permit shot gun $28.00
Extra buck permit BP-$28.00
Extar doe permit BP- $28.00
Just for paperwork. I don't mind paying it cause it's what I love to do. I know that part of the money I spend goes towards conservation, education etc and that is a good thing.
Well said.A buddy of mine was from Michigan. At one time, they offered a LIFETIME hunting and fishing license (guess they needed the money that year) for $300. He bought his kids (ages 5 and 7) each one... Talk about a deal - huh?
RD - You're right - we'll pay whatever it cost to fish until we die.
