ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — It will soon cost more to get hunting and fishing licenses in Minnesota.

Gov. Mark Dayton signed a bill Thursday to boost a range of fees with the money going to bolster wildlife resource management. Adult resident fishing fees will go up from $17 to $22 a season, and from $25 to $35 for a married couple. A deer hunting license for residents will rise from $26 to $30. Other fees will rise by similar amounts.

The fee hikes were sought by a coalition of outdoors groups and supported by Republicans and Democrats in the Legislature.

The fees were contained in a larger game and fish bill that also establishes an annual wolf hunt in Minnesota, subject to a state-set quota.
