I lived in MT for 24 years and hunted there most of my life. I worked for the USFS for Mt's forests and love my home state. The tag changes to me is a bummer. I can no longer afford the out of state rates to hunt my home state. Making the tags almost $1000 for the combo is ridiculous after paying so much less in the past. The real issue for MT in my opinion is the wolves. I returned home last year to hunt the forest in which I worked everyday in for 3 years to see animal numbers in the dumps. I saw less than 40 deer in the 3 weeks I was home and elk was super tough. I used to see over 40 deer a day 7 years ago. Raising the tag prices to those prices when the animals numbers SUCK is stupid. Just my 2 cents!
