That vote was the final approval for House Bill 4668 before it heads to Gov. Rick Snyder’s desk. The bill establishes a $10 base resident hunting license and charges additional for specific animals. This more than doubles the cost for a deer license from $15 to $30 for most Michigan residents because the deer license costs $20. Fees for waterfowl and turkey are $12 and $15, respectively.
If signed by Snyder, the bill would take effect March 2014.
