CONCORD — New Hampshire's Fish and Game Commission has approved proposed $10 fee increases for regular hunting and fishing licenses in the state, the first increase in 12 years.
Pending approval of a legislative committee, the increases would take effect on Jan. 1, 2016.
For state residents, fees would go to $43 for a fishing license, $31 for a hunting license and $54 for a combination license.
For the first time, hunters and anglers over age 68 would have to buy a $5 annual license, plus habitat and transaction fees. The clam/oyster license for those over 68 would remain free, with no additional fees. Non-residents, who pay more, would also pay $10 more for most permits.
