They need to quit grousing!!!
Here, and this isn't bad either, there's the hunting license for small game $17. A fishing license is also $17, so I get the combo hunting/fishing; it costs $25. Then there are stamps for game bird habitat $6.75, waterfowl $6.75 and trout/salmon $11. The tags are also additional. Spring turkey tag $25, fall turkey tag $25, each deer tag $24 (up to 6, I think), bonus antlerless deer tag first tag $24 then $15 after that. Finally, a trapping license runs $17.
The prices really aren't bad at all. They have gone up from last year, but I think they're pretty cheap compared to some states. The fact that you don't have to buy a hunting license before you buy a deer tag is a bonus.
