Some people might not look favorably at the out-of-state license plates on the vehicles of those hunters and fishermen that come into the state, but Ctate Conservation Department officials say those out-of-staters are bringing much needed revenue into Missouri. Conservation spokesman Jim Low says Missouri’s reputation as the finest wild turkey hunting location in the country brings in a lot of people. And, Low says non-resident deer hunting permits are up about 300 percent over the same period. He says out-of-state hunters and fishermen pay for nearly a quarter of all the license sales made in Missouri each year. Plus, Low says the money they spend on gas, supplies, lodging and food end up bringing in millions more to state coffers.
