HB 179-FN - FISCAL NOTE

AN ACT permitting certain hunting activities on one’s own land without a license.

FISCAL IMPACT:

      The Fish and Game Department states this bill will decrease state fish and game fund revenue by an indeterminable amount in FY 2005 and each year thereafter. There is no fiscal impact on county and local revenue or state, county and local expenditures.

METHODOLOGY:

    The Department indicates this bill provides that persons hunting on their own land who are exempt from hunting license requirements shall also be exempt from other special permit, stamp, and tag requirements. The Department states that the decrease in fish and game revenue is indeterminable because the Department cannot estimate the number of resident landowners that would no longer purchase special permits, stamps or tags including deer (special archery permit at $15, crossbow at $5 and muzzleloader at $15,) pheasant at $15, turkey at $5, bear at $4, waterfowl at $4, and moose application at $10 and moose permit at $100.
