With CRP enrollment dropping and old CRP projects expiring in the prairie pothole region and habitat conversion on the wintering grounds this is good news for long term habitat acquisition.

Cliff notes: For those who don't want to click on the link. House passed the measure on Nov. 17th, Senate passed it today, once Obama signs it the duck stamp will go from $15 to $25 with 98% of the purchase price going towards wetlands/waterfowl conservation. If/when passed will be the first increase in 23 years.

Principal is capital or importance. Principle is a rule or law.

So, the principal principle is to add principal.

Thanks for the clarification. I knew I wasn't sure but didn't have time to double check

Another $10.00 doesn't bother me much. I've had a Lifetime Combo License for 23 years. The only thing I pay for is a Fed Duck Stamp.
On the otherhand, I only duck hunt on private property so more public wetlands won't help me a whole lot.

I was thinking we should get our money back this year with no fronts pushing down birds.

They should raise it to $200

Less hunting pressure, more wetlands, more ducks
