    The Game and Fish is funded by the traditional "user pays" philosophy. This means that there is no general fund appropriated from the State for the Game and Fish. The funding comes mainly from the annual sales of licenses to hunters and fishermen. Of those sales, nonresident make up close to 70% of that funding.

    I worked several years for the agency before politics to control, and the G&F has been dipping into the general fund for quit some time now. Also to be accurate the NR fisherman make the G&F the most money, not the big game sale.The big game division side is actually a revenue loss by the time you pay everyones salary (not to mention all the other B.S.). A desk jockey regional supervisor makes over 90k a year (with a B.S. degree thats re-donkulous for what they do). Lived here a long time, and miss going over ridges and not seeing some one coming from the other side. Times change, it just sucks. I seriously think a agency that gets absolutly no money from the license sales should be in control of the management of fisheries, and game animals. i seriously think that is the only way we are ever going to see true game management in WY. Mule Deer are done here, the ranchers are starting to take over and regulate hunting for them and its helping, but for the most part its to late in most of the state.

    LMAO ! I've heard the very figures from G&F people. Doesn't really matter to me what there percentage is though.
    I enjoy helping them out with the thousand's of dollars I've given them for the last 30 yrs. Not to mention all the $$$ spent while there either.

    I understand that the nonresident tags generate a significant amount of revenue but there is no possible way that out of state money is going to make or break the game and fish or any other entity in this state.
