Fish and Wildlife Commission proposing increases

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky's Fish and Wildlife Commission is asking for fee increases for some licenses and permits, but rates for basic hunting and fishing licenses for Kentucky adults wouldn't be affected.

The recommendations must be approved by two legislative committees before becoming law.

Among changes the commission is proposing are increasing the deer permit for residents from $30 to $35; senior/disabled licenses from $5 to $11; deer permit for non-residents from $60 to $160; quota bull elk permit for residents from $30 to $100; and non-resident quota bull elk permit from $365 to $550.

Also proposed are two new licenses for Kentucky residents: a senior lifetime sportsman's license for $82 and a three-year fishing license for $55.

The proposed changes are posted at http://fw.ky.gov .
