Higher hunting, license fees negotiated; early opener dies
ST. PAUL -- Minnesota legislative negotiators agreed with 60 outdoors groups that hunting and fishing fees should increase, but ditched a proposal to open the fishing season a week early.
They also agreed to establish wolf hunting and trapping seasons.
The House passed a bill Friday night 77-52 with a few game and fish provisions. The major bill, with fee increases, was not expected to be debated by the full House or Senate until Saturday.
