Wisconsin Governor Evers signs bill increasing out-of-state bow and crossbow deer hunting license fees

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers has signed a bill that raises the cost for bow and crossbow deer hunting licenses for out-of-state residents.

The Republican-authored measure raises the cost of the licenses by an additional $35 to $200. The state Department of Natural Resources estimates the increase will generate an additional $543,200 annually for the state's fish and wildlife account. The DNR has projected that dwindling license sale revenue will leave the account with a nearly $16 million deficit heading into the next state budget. Evers signed the bill privately Thursday.
