Hunting And Fishing Fees Down In 1965 According to figures at County Recorder Clara Walker's office, income from hunting and fishing licenses was $7,057 less in 1965 than in 1964. Mrs. Walker, county recorder, as well as her staff, attributes the decrease to the fact that there were so many fewer hunting licenses issued during the recent pheasant season. The total on all licenses sold in 1965 was $14,585.25, as compared with a total in 1964 of $21,642.25. This includes fishing, hunting, combination fishing-hunting, trapping, nonresident fishing or hunting and trout stamps. There were only 50 non-resident hunting licenses sold in 1965, with an income of $860.50, and 1,119 resident licenses sold for a total of $2,797.50. Trapping licenses sold brought in a total in 1965 of $213. Pheasant season closed Jan. 2. The price of a license was increased Jan. 1, 1966. Separate hunting and fishing licenses now cost $3 each and the combination licenses are up to $5 for residents.
