State hunting fees soar for seniors

WARRENSBURG - Seniors who go hunting may be in for a big surprise, Warrensburg Town Clerk Donna Combs said this week.

State-mandated hunting and fishing license fees have increased effective Oct. 1, she said. But for citizens between 65 and 70 years of age, the fees have skyrocketed from $5 per year to $47 per year, because the age of a Senior Hunter has increased from 65 to 70.

Combs offered a way to minimize the financial pain.

Prior to October 1, any hunter who is between 65 and 70 can avoid this ballooning charge by purchasing a Lifetime Sportsman License and pay a one-time fee of $50.
