    High Cost Licenses or High Availability Licenses?

    Since license prices and availability don't often go hand in hand what would you rather have?

    A 1 in 3000 shot of drawing a tag for $20 ( with no refund given if not drawn)

    Or a 1 in 3 chance of drawing a tag for $2000 (with a refund of 98% if not drawn).

    Let's say your in an area with 20 tags.

    I'd like to keep hunting a non-rich requirement in order to hunt.

    But when residents can buy a sheep tag/once in a lifetime tag for $50 when a non-res has to front $2500 in order to apply, 1 hunter has to front alot of cash, whereas another, anyone in the world can afford.

    certain tags, especially once ina lifetime tags should be the same price or at least way more than they currently charge most residents, the same as a non-res price makes sense to me.

    if you're a res and can't afford a $300 once in a lifetime sheep tag, then you shouldn't be applying to hunt sheep in the first place.
    I'm not talking about making your annual deer tag $300 btw, just once in a lifetime type tags.


    Accept Credit Cards
    Charge the full tag fee up front, refundable.
    Small application/tag fee per tag $5-20, non-refundable.
    Refunds within 1 month of application deadline.

    I don't agree if you want to get treated like a resident, live in sheep country.

    The problem is for sheep you would probably have to get tag prices up over $10,000 before you'd start to see good draw odds. New Mexico already charges $3000 for sheep tags and they have no lack of interest.

    If you are talking deer of elk, if the tag prices got up near $2000, I'd probably just buy a landowner tag.

    I didn't either. My choice was always 100% chance for $49. Hunting was always better than losing the draw, or taking one of those blasted OTC tags.
