Patrick Kelley started this petition to Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation and

Today on the 4th of March, 2021, I start this petition to fight back against the price increase of fishing licenses and hunting permits throughout the state of Massachusetts. I Patrick Kelley have been fishing central mass my whole life and have been legally allowed to do so throughout the state after obtaining a license for salt and freshwater. I firmly believe the sport of fishing and hunting builds valuable life skills as well as brings people together. It was a specific bond with my father and I and I KNOW I’m not the only one who shares this love. But after a pandemic money is tight, were all feeling it, but for those citizens who have low income, fishing is a hobby that doesn’t cost much to enjoy. And  by doubling just the freshwater fee is just stealing the affordability away from the people who can barely afford it. And I’m starting this petition to try and stop increasing the price for the people who follow guidelines. And start raising the fee to those who chose not to follow. Double the checks for licensing and confiscating all equipment From those  who do not follow the rules. Imagine for just one second, How many MORE people would fish legally and also GROW the outdoor sporting community. We could even start fundraising instead of just taxing the citizens even more than this very expensive state already does. We need to stand up against this and continue to fight against this rapid increase.
