Legislature Considering Multi-Year Hunting, Fishing Licenses

By Jim McCoy Wed 13th March Newsfishing licenseshunting licensesOregon legislature
Oregon legislators are considering a bill to allow hunters and fishermen to buy licenses good for more than just one year. The Medford Mail Tribune reports a House committee has recommended the bill for passage. A Fish and Wildlife Department official says it could consider licenses good for up to five years at a discount of perhaps 10 percent of what five one-year licenses would cost. Hunters and fishermen wouldn't be subject to fee increases during the term of their licenses. Currently, a one-year hunting license costs $29.50 and a one-year angling license costs $33. A combination license costs $58. The Fish and Wildlife Department last sought a fee increase in 2009, saying the rates would last at least six years.
