    The goddess of the hunt is a fickel mistress. The day when you can no longer keep up with the pack and run down your prey --is the day you become food for something else. Survival of the fittest; the law of tooth and fang. None of us are getting out of this life alive. Now some will try to prolong the process; asking for more roads in roadless areas, special perks to drive in where no one else can, freebies, special tag prices, hire an outfitter to tote your tired carcass and do the work for you...but that doesn't keep you in the game forever.

    All residents should certainly be able to hunt their own state, without high fees. Some families need to hunt to put meat on the table. Hunting another state is a luxury and should demand a higher price. That said, it should not be a luxury for only the wealthy. Out of state hunters already put a good bit of money into the local economy. This should be welcomed. If a state wants more NR money they should bump up the NR tag quota a few % points instead of raising the price of the tags. This would both bring more money into the State's revenue AND into local economies.

    That probably won't happen. They give out the number of tags according to to size of the herd in that unit. So, everybody has a chance for a kill without shooting each other.

    Same mount of tags. Just a few more NR and a few less Resident. Just a thought, if their concern if money. 10 more non residents in a unit could generate thousands of dollars for the locals and thousands for the state. VS. just a few hundred dollars for 10 residents to hunt there.

    Will you accept that? Will you not hunt one year to let in a NR who can pay more money?

    Imagine if everyone had to pay non-resident fees, and tags were just, if you want one, pay the money, anyone a resident or a non-resident could get a tag every year, if they wanted to pay the tag price!

    so sure you can hunt elk in your home state every year for $750.

    sounds like a win-win to me, 100% drawing odds for residents and non-residents right? what's not to love?

    after all "if you're not rich, blame yourself"


    hopefully you can detect my sarcasm, seems most people support fairer tag fees, and if not, then we might as well make them unfair, ie non-resident fees for everyone, and 100% draw odds for all who apply, ie... full tag fee must paid in full up front.

    Your plan is perfect if your goal is to eliminate the herds.

    Going to another state to hunt is a luxury. If you can't afford it? Hunt at home.

    I'd rather pay 15X more than have "non-profit" wildlife orgs like SFW plant their boys in F&G Dept's and legislatures to steal the tags for auction. That is a MUCH bigger issue than the BS squabbling I'm reading here. People can't see the forest for the trees.

    If people don't take action you won't have to worry about 10X or 15X, because every tag out there will be on ebay sold to the highest bidder.
