Email News Alerts

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) breathed a collective sigh of relief last Thursday after a game and fish bill was signed into law by Governor Mark Dayton.


The newly signed bill will raise the cost of many hunting and fishing licenses, while lowering youth hunting and fishing licenses to $5 or less. The cost of an annual resident fishing license will go from $17 to $22 and a resident deer license from $26 to $30.
