Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Feb. 11, 2015 5C  " OUTDOORS, from page 4C which killed the deer the people were trying to feed. You're right to feel confused and I've asked the same question. It doesn't seem right because it sends the wrong message to the customers, but the Fish and Game Code generally doesn't regulate the products that feed stores and pet stores may carry. Many also sell ferret food, and those animals are illegal to possess in California. Fee increases Question: Why do fishing and hunting license fees and various cards and tags increase in price every year? This concerns my friends and me as we are of the older population of California and are on fixed incomes. Hunting and fishing are some of the only pleasures we have to enjoy in our old age, but it is becoming so costly we won't be able to afford it if you keep raising prices. --Bill D. Answer: California law establishes fishing and hunting license fees each year, not the Department of Fish and Wildlife. The base fee for sport fishing licenses is established in Fish and Game Code section 7149 and the fees for stamps and most report cards are established in other sections of the Fish and Game Code or California Code of Regulations Title 14. According to CDFW License Program Analyst Glenn Underwood, Fish and Game Code section 713 requires license fees to be adjusted in response to increases (or decreases) in costs of goods and services using an index called the "implicit price deflator." This index is a gauge of the change in the cost of goods and services from year to year. For example, as hatchery, law enforcement and wildlife management costs have increased, license fees needed to increase to keep pace with these rising costs. Essentially, license fees are adjusted to compensate for inflation. If license fees were not adjusted for inflation, then funding for fish and wildlife management and protection would actually decrease because the "buying power" of a dollar has declined over the years. License fee increases over the past five years have ranged from a low of 1.2 percent in 2013 to a hzgh of 2.8 percent m 2011. The average index over the past five years has been 1.91 percent. For 2014, the cost of goods and services increased by 1.3 percent and 2015 license fees increased accordingly. If the cost of goods and services were to decrease, then license fees would actually decrease the same percentage. However, when is the last time the cost of living actually decreased? Although fishing and hunting license fees have increased throughout the years, the increase ensures that the CDFW has adequate' funding to manage California's diverse fish and wildlife resources and provide the public with enjoyable fishing and hunting experiences. CHESTER, from page 3C An excellent example of that performance was displayed last week as the Indians brought down the Herlong Vikings on a 73-56 final score. The road win gave Greenville a 6-0 record in PML standings and saw the squad rise to 13-5 overall on the season. Leading the push for Greenville, once again, was sophomore co-captain Justus Eaglesmith, who delivered an an-around game for the Indians with 31 points and 12 rebounds for the double-double, three assists, two blocks and six steals. The game marked Eaglesmith's eighth double-double of the season. Eaglesmith's durability during the game was tested in a big way in the first half when he drove to the basket and received a hit above the head from a Herlong player, sending him crashing to the floor. He survived the mashup and continued to score for the Indians in the second half of the game. Fellow co-captain, senior Walker Meyers, earned 14 points while senior Christian . Beres added 16 points. Junior i: Ray Bustamante worked hard on offense and picked off four steals that led to scores early in the game. James Martinez ended the game with six points and Bustamante had four on the night.
