The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (DGIF), facing decreasing license sales and a budget shortfall forecast for fiscal year 2014, has proposed an increase in hunting and fishing license fees that could take affect in July.

The proposals include an increase of up to $5 per license for in-state residents and as much as $50 per license for out-of-state residents.

The increases were suggested by department staff at the DGIF’s board of directors meeting Oct. 10, 2010. The board then decided to open the proposals to public comment for 120 days, from Dec. 16, 2010, to April 14, 2011.
