Under the proposed licensing outdoorsmen will to purchase the "basic" Conservation License at of 25 cents to Montana and $1 to nonresidents. Instead of purchasing separate for fishing for each game species, sportsmen have to purchase stamps. stamps are to be pasted to basic license. Director Frank Dunkle of the and Game Department says the new procedure is designed to make the department eligible to receive federal funds raised through taxes on sales of sporting goods and to keep a closer check on license dealers. Dunkle told a Senate committee earlier this month that such federal funds cannot be paid to Montana under the present licensing procedure. He predicted the federal money will amount to between $100,000 and $300,000 annually. The department has found, Dunkle said, that some license agents have devised a method under the current licensing system of defrauding the state out of a portion of the money due from license sales. The change will increase the total cost of the complete hunting and fishing package to Montana residents by only 25 cents, he said.
