LD 768 would establish a comprehensive fishing and hunting license, for those like me who dislike constantly having to purchase special permits for everything from turkey hunting to muzzleloading for deer.
LD 1236 would add protections to our Heritage Water’s native trout, and was carried over to give DIF&W a chance to fulfill their promise to do this before the next legislative session.
LD 11, a Constitutional amendment to protect hunting and fishing
LD 630, an Act To Prohibit Third Parties from Facilitating Transfers of Moose Permits for Consideration (money).
Any new legislative bills next year can only be considered with the approval of the legislative leadership, so it could be a very easy session for members of the Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Committee.
Other committees have many more bills carried over.
Next week I’ll tell you about all the fish and wildlife laws and law changes that were enacted this year.
