Free Hunting And Fishing Licenses For Some Seniors To End

KSCB News - December 10, 2012 8:15 am

Kansans between the ages of 65 and 74 have only a few days left to enjoy hunting and fishing for free.

The state will stop providing free hunting and fishing licenses for people in that age range, starting in January.

The exemption began in 1971. State officials estimate ending the practice will bring in $900,000 to $1.5 million.

Mike Miller, spokesman for the state’s wildlife department, says Kansas misses out on federal money because it doesn’t sell enough licenses. He says an estimated 30,000 hunters don’t have to buy licenses because of the age exemption.
