Idaho 2021 nonresident tag and license fee increase - posted 1 week ago

I always kind of think of it like this. People always complain about the high cost of out of state tags, when those same tags have 100% drawing odds then things might change.

As long as those tags are hard to draw, prices will continue to go up. Right now in the West supply is greatly out weighed by demand. Even areas known for being difficult to access or shot out still have a high demand.

The idea that the state will lower the prices because people complain is silly. If enough people vote with their feet, and stop buying them maybe. It would take a revolution for that to happen, there are just way more people wanting tags than their are tags. Every western state has this problem. Most of the hunting lands of Idaho is within 7 hours drive from Salt lake, Portland or Seattle. Public hunting demand in Utah outstrips tag allocations by a ton in Utah. Those people are hungry for public hunting, and Idaho is close.

You guys act like complaining is going to make a difference. The only change will come when there is no demand.

People are going to put in for Idaho and New Mexico because of how bad preference/bonus points systems have screwed up the draws.

Imagine telling an 8 year old if you continually give Wyoming, Montana, Utah, Nevada and Arizona $2000 per year, when you turn 30 you might get to hunt elk there, but you can forget about sheep, goats, moose and anything else until you are over 100.

As someone who served 20 years in the military. I will say that no one owes any American anything, but it is nice when a veteran can pick up a perk or two.

Idaho has a great non-resident disabled veteran program. If you qualify it is worth checking it out.
