Fiscal Detail and Notes
This legislation would eliminate the turkey permit requirements and allow the hunting of turkey with a big or small game hunting license.  These provisions would result in a loss of General Fund revenue of $246,142 in fiscal year 2013-14 and $328,190 in fiscal year 2014-15.  This analysis assumes elimination of all revenue from sale of turkey permits partially offset by a 25% increase in non-resident small game licenses.
