From the Clarion Ledger newspaper in Jackson, Ms. :
On May 12, the MDWFP commission filed a notice with the Secretary of State's office that outlined new prices of several nonresident hunting and fishing licenses. Under the proposal, the nonresident annual small game hunting license was raised from $75 to $95, the nonresident annual freshwater fishing license from $50 to $60, nonresident waterfowl from $15 to $19, and the nonresident seven-day small game license from $30
The action was the result of the passage of House Bill 1151 during the 2016 legislative session. The bill, authored by House Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks Committee chairman Scott Bounds, R-Philadelphia, calls for the first increase in resident hunting and fishing license fees in 23 years. It also stipulates the commission must first increase fees for nonresidents, but stops short of dictating which licenses or dollar amounts.
'We went up 27 percent on nonresidents, which is the same as resident,' commissioner Billy Deviney said. 'It was deliberate.'
No mention of the NR deer license fee. They may be waiting to spring that on you when deer season nears!
I hope Louisiana raises the NR saltwater license fee 27%.
