As for tag allocations for non residents, it's not practical for everybody that wants to go hunt a great unit in say, "colorado" to get the chance. Demand is way too high, so the states are keeping most of the tags for their residents, only makes sense. It's a rare opportunity to get these high demand units and the wait is long and hard, that's what makes them so special. The industry/number of hunters is growing much faster than the game populations, everybody will not be satisfied. BKC said it, "supply and demand".
