Michigan Increases Hunting and Fishing License Fees

Posted: Updated:

It's been a hot topic for nearly a year, and Tuesday the Governor raised the state's hunting and fishing license fees.

The price of some tags will drop but many will rise.

The DNR also says the entire system will be simplified by cutting the number of different license types from about 240 down to about 40.

Governor Snyder signed the bill into law Tuesday afternoon with the changes not set to take effect until April 1st, 2014.

The DNR expects the changes will increase their revenue by $18 million a year.

9&10's Eric Lloyd looked into the impact of the changes on hunters.
