Explanation

This bill expands the use of private property deer hunting permits to include single-shot handguns (in addition to revolvers).

This may result in a minimal revenue gain from the additional sale of $5 Private Land Deer Endorsements, totaling less than $5,000 annually. The five-year average for the sale of revolver endorsements is $4,572.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above would continue into the future subject to the number of permits sold.
