Idaho 2021 nonresident tag and license fee increase -
posted 2 weeks ago
Ben K the wolf tags didn't increase because they want people to shoot as many as they can
Every single state that I hunt as a NR has raised their prices over the past few years. Every. Single. One. Buwanna, I'll spend my money how I see fit, you spend yours how you see fit. It's a simple concept. I'll hunt with my NR friends who come here to hunt, then I'll enjoy my hunt with them when I go there. The great thing about this country. All that bitterness from you isn't going to help anything.
Also, their was a big public outcry on this, and the Idaho legislature listened to the citizens of Idaho. As they should.
Buwanna, the difference is Idaho didn't try to set aside 30% of NR tags for outfitters. Same number of tags are available in Idaho, and the price finally went up after ten years, TEN YEARS, of staying the same. I would hate to listen to you whining in a deer or elk camp, sounds like you're the life of the party. Trying to call out Brady makes you look like a fool on this. Complain all you want about Wyoming, they don't care. Their licenses all went up and the demand is still as high as ever. Grind your axe somewhere else.
It "hasn't been debated ad nauseam" on hunting forums, it has been settled in court on multiple occasions. The state owns the animals and can manage them as they see fit, whether that be on federal, state, or private land. Resident license fees went up a couple years ago, and any change to resident licenses fees from here forward has to go through the state legislature. The federal land argument holds zero water in forums or the courts. You can do anything else you want on those lands as a taxpayer but if you intend to hunt or fish you will pay the fees that the state established.
