Conservation Congress Member wants higher fees

A Sturgeon Bay member of Conservation Congress thinks it's about time to raise hunting and fishing license fees. The prices of the fees have not changed since 2005. The Wisconsin DNR gets 80% of its funding from hunting and fishing license revenue. In 2016, DNR administration reported a $4 million shortfall. Dick Baudhuin, a member of Conservation Congress from Sturgeon Bay, says the DNR can't just raise fees on its own. That has to be passed legislatively and Baudhuin says politics have gotten in the way of the state legislature in passing higher license fees.
