The Future of Wisconsin Conservation Funding: Alternatives and Options for Fishing and Hunting Licenses

More than 90 percent of Wisconsin's fish and wildlife conservation funding comes from the sale of hunting and fishing licenses. License sales have fallen in recent years, a trend expected to continue in the absence of policy intervention. This report recommends changes to the revenue structure to maintain participation in hunting and fishing, improve revenue, and expand participation. The proposals seek a sustainable future for the state's conservation funding. Presentation slides
