There are currently some bills that have been introduced for 2010 and they await hearing at the Oklahoma State Legislature. Some of these may be very interesting to many of you.
HB 2861: Would increase fines for certain wildlife violations and require restitution for illegal killing or possession of wildlife.
SB 1393: Would eliminate the trout stamp. Cost of the trout program would be offset by increasing fishing license fees for non-residents.
SB 1781: Would give those holding senior citizen hunting and fishing licenses the same benefits as regular lifetime holders.
HB 2555: Would require that only fishing guides on Lake Texoma be required to have guide licenses. A regulations passed in 2009 requires all fishing guides in the state to be licensed.
