The Hawg Forum / Re: CT Licenses....
« on: March 17, 2010, 10:08:53 AM »
Last year our CT legislators decided to double almost every fee and license issued in CT.  All fishing and hunting licenses doubled from 2009 to 2010!  The worst part of it is that the fees are now going into the general fund.  CT stands to lose federal funding under the Pittman-Robinson Act because of this.  If that happens watch the decline of CT fishing and hunting opportunities.  I fear a lot of areas will be closed to hunting and fishing and that the fees will be increased again. 

It is now less expensive for me to buy a non-resident fishing license in MA than a resident license in CT. 

The end result of all this is that the income from licensing fees will go DOWN not up.  Non-residents will not fish or hunt in CT, residents will say "screw it I won't get caught" and not buy a license. 

The idiots in Hartford have no idea what they are doing.  They have no idea of the  concept of cutting spending.  They think the answer to all problems in CT is to increase taxes and fees.
