    That's shocking to me that NR accounted for 80%+ of the license sales. Obviously, when the out of state take costs 10x the resident tag, NR's can make up ground quickly, but those numbers seem disproportionate. It would be interesting to see the differences in states like Utah, that are nearly all limited entry type units vs states like CO or ID with more OTC opportunity.

    Regarding the boycott.... People talk a big game, seldom do they back it up.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    I think what really skews the numbers is the amount of tags Colorado sells. I am sure they sell far more Elk tags than any other state, which is appropriate as we have more elk than any other state. I also think that the NR resident licenses are cheaper than any other state too.

    I agree. People talk about a boycott but I cant see it ever actually happening, especially if the hunting is good. Also CO is 1 of the few places you can get an OTC tag. I think ID and MT came closer to a boycott then anyone with price increases and wolves taking their toll on many areas.

    I personally think the CO hunting boycott is a bonehead idea. As you can see it didn't do anything to damage the state Game and Fish. All a boycott would do, is hurt the good people in Colorado who think like we do. Those people are not the problem in Colorado, its the libs in Denver and Boulder that are the problem. The recall elections are a much, much better idea. The biggest problem in Colorado is the fact that the wrong kind of people have been moving into the state over the last twenty years. Now the good old long time residents that made the state great, are in the minority now. Sad deal for all of our gun loving, backcountry hunting Colorado bothers. -G
