    HB0112 Big & Trophy Game Licenses

    If I'm reading this right, this bill is to increase the percentage of licenses going to residents and significantly reduces the percentage of tags going to non residents. If so, you residents need to be contacting your legislative reps and asking for their support. Looks like they're also including a small resident fee increase for all tags. I imagine the Wyoming Guides & Outfitters will be paying big bucks to get this bill defeated.

    I also see that HB0031 (discussed in an earlier thread here) which was the bill introduced for the 10% across the board license fee increase failed introduction.

    Do you have a link to that bill?

    What do you guys think is a fair ratio for tag allocation? Alaska is looking at this issue also.

    I think this bill would mostly impact the NR deer and antelope licence allocation. I'd say that somewhere in the 75-25 or 80-20 range is most beneficial to all parties involved.

    Lots of residents up here want 90%---10%, at least on drawing hunts for sheep. I suspect we will have some changes in allocation ratios coming.

    If there is a reduction in nonresident licenses, one of many issues that will have to be dealt with is the substantial fees the state has taken in over the past 8 years for preference points. The point system has created an expectation that a certain amount of tags are available and the applicants are making an investment towards those tags. For a non-resident applying for points for sheep, moose, elk, deer and antelope, they have been investing $295 per year to accrue points.

    One personal example, for moose, I have invested $675 in points. I am already concerned that I may not draw the tag in my lifetime, a further reduction in tags will pretty much make that a certainty.
