MADISON, Wis. – State Senator Tom Tiffany (R-Minocqua) released this statement after hearing reports of a renewed effort to increase hunting fees:

“Conservation Congress Chairman Larry Bonde continues to push for a fee increase on sportsmen and sportswomen despite the Governor not including it in his budget, and the repeated comments from the DNR Secretary that the increases are not needed. During DNR Secretary-nominee Preston Cole’s confirmation meetings, he described the accounts related to the fee increases to me as ‘healthy’ and did not think the fee increases were necessary. In his confirmation public hearing, he reaffirmed that sentiment.

“Despite these facts, Mr. Bonde continues to criticize Senate Republicans for being the roadblock to the fee hikes. I remain supportive of the Governor and the DNR Secretary’s position to not include fee increases in the state budget and urge the Conservation Congress to advocate for more opportunity for sportsmen and sportswomen without raising the costs of hunting and fishing in Wisconsin.”

One thought on “Senator Tiffany’s Statement on Hunting Fee Increases”

  1. Mingus says:

    Our hunting and fishing licenses do not cost much. If any new money would be used to add to the services that would improve the sporting experience, most all license holders would be in agreement. Republicans have continually over the years cut budges for the DNR and recreational activities. Senator Tiffany acts more like a self-promoting Waukesha County Republican than someone representing the northern Wisconsin vacation areas. You wou think would be interested in improving and expanding outdoor recreation activities that would draw families to the areas he represents.
