Your License Dollars at Work

Did you know your license dollars and a federal excise tax on your purchase of hunting and fishing equipment pays for most of MassWildlife’s fish, wildlife and habitat management and its other conservation programs? Since 1938, the Division of Fisheries and Wildlife has partnered with the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service, sportsmen and women, and the fishing, hunting, shooting, and boating industries to fund fish and wildlife projects through the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program. Today, this pioneering program serves as a cost-effective model for fish and wildlife conservation by providing fish and wildlife access to those who both funded and directly benefit from the resource—the anglers and hunters. Their contributions through this “user pay, public benefit” conservation model—funded by license purchases and excise taxes on fishing and hunting equipment—benefit all Massachusetts residents, fish, wildlife and their habitats.
