It’s time for a comprehensive hunting license
This is the third in a series of columns about bills I have proposed for the 2015 legislative session.
It’s titled An Act to Establish a Comprehensive Hunting License and is sponsored by Representative Mike Shaw of Standish.
The bill would create a single comprehensive hunting license covering all hunting opportunities, and repeal all other hunting licenses and permits. This license will not include lottery applications or fishing licenses, except that a combination hunting and fishing license can be offered. Residents would pay $38 and nonresidents $144 for the comprehensive hunting license. A hunter safety course would also still be required to purchase this license.
