State raising fees for hunting, fishing licenses in 2017


ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) – The state Department

of Fish and Game has announced that fees will increase

for sport fishing, hunting and trapping licenses starting

next year.

The agency’s announcement Thursday comes as the

result of a bill approved by lawmakers earlier this year. The law, which takes effect Jan. 1, was supported by conservation groups, sportsmen’s organizations and the guiding industry, the department said.

Officials said it’s the first time in 24 years that fees for Alaska hunting licenses will increase. Fees for fishing licenses haven’t gone up in a decade.
