Non-resident tag fees out of control!
All states should agree to a multiplier of 10x or less.
ie resident elk tag, $50, then a non-res elk tag would be $500.
1 horrible example is MT, resident elk tag $20, non-resident $794, that's a 40x multiplier!!!
That means if you sell 1 non-resident an elk tag, you need to sell 40 residents an elk tag to generate the same amount of revenue!
Also once-in-a-lifetime type tags should be the same price as non-residents or at least more than they currently are, tell me a resident wouldn't apply for a desert bighorn sheep if the tag cost $100 vs. $30?? after 30+ years of applying I think a resident could fork over $100 for that tag.
There's no reason non-residents should be forced to subsidize resident's tag fees.
I'd love to see Eastmans' Poll this
