Default Wisconsin Hunters!

was just wondering what you all thought about the licenses increase they will be putting into effect soon. from $20 to $32 to hunt and $17 to $20 to fish.
i dont know how much it costs you guys but instead of it costing me $57 it will now cost me $84 which i think is a little much for an increase but thats just my opinion
just wondering what everyone thought

I'm not from Wisconsin but I pay $32 for my bow license here in IL. Doesn't seem TOO high to me... Fishing is still $17 (I think). How'd you get from 32+20=52 all the way to $84??

I'll pay it! It sucks but $32 is still a good deal! I get my Consevation Patron for $140 so I don't know if it will effect this?? I could'nt find any info on that! Hope not....

I think he's refering to bow $32 + gun $32 + fishing $20

You should be able to save a few bucks by getting a sportsmans license.

BowHuntingFool , it will effect the Patron license as well.

Personally I think they should have spread the increase a little more even across the board instead of a 60% increase for deer hunters and a 18% increase for fishermen.[&:]

Especially considering our deer herd is TOO LARGE! A 60% increase should bring more hunters afield.
