If you can get 1000 Dayton and sheep tags for kids and no adults, go for it.  I would be happy.  Reality is probably closer to 50.  Give those all to kids and I would help haul meat.

My comments were not exclusive to Idaho, you have the internet, sports and Xbox too.  They know no boundaries.

Or, we could all vote for things that benefit us and cuss the others when we all know what is going to happen happens.

A number of folks are disappointed that Idaho is not more generously subsidizing non-resident youth and disabled veterans big game tags...having them pay ~1/2 price is apparently greedy of Idahoans.  However, I'm not hearing what sacrifices these same folks would like to see Washington make in the name of youth hunter recruitment and appreciation of veterans?

A few have stated that there is really no quality hunting in WA general big game seasons...but there certainly are quality hunts available.  So, why not set aside all quality elk and deer permits and all moose, sheep, goat tags and all current raffle and auction tags for youth (including non-residents - as there are kids in Idaho that would also like Swakane sheep tags and dayton bull tags)?  This would be at least 1,000 tags...and to be eligible you have to be a kid or a disabled veteran.  Obviously there would still not be enough tags to give to every kid and disabled veteran a hunt every year - but it would be much, much higher proportion of kids and disabled veterans getting quality experiences.

Are you for real? We’re talking general season opportunities here and in my opinion youth licenses should be damn near free no matter what state you’re talking about. Let’s get them hunting, not playing video games. I understand fee hikes for the rest of us but completely disagree when it comes to the kids.

As a hunter who has lived in both states, and still hunts both regularly, I hate to defend any kind of price hike, but Idaho has been a "bargain" as far as western states go, especially with general seasons...it is now more in-line with other western states, but still offers an over the counter, general season tag unlike some neighboring (MT) states that you must get drawn for just to get a general season tag.

I don't agree with raising the youth or vet tags as that simply doesn't make any sense...those programs are not like general season purchasers...they are to get youth afield and to help get disabled vets afield, period. Why raise their prices? If anything give the disabled NR vet the opportunity to buy a lifetime resident license and offer resident tag prices...they became disabled defending our ENTIRE country, including Idaho. The kid from the Bronx, NY was injured defending the USA, not just the Bronx.

Well said on the disabled vets couldn’t agree more. Kids I think Idaho is still a good deal compared to many other western states. Kids can still hunt cheap in their resident state they are not being priced out of hunting at all. Huntin out of state is a luxury hunting in your home state is still cheap for youth. Washington in my experience has created a good youth hunting season especially with the ability to hunt at any age if you can pass hunter safety. If you don’t like the price take your kid hunting at home,whatever state that happens to be.

I disagree non-res youth should be reduced much at all, its just a way for a dad to hunt on the cheap and it takes away from folks paying full price. If they weren't ever selling out, then I'd reconsider.

Youth, elderly and vet tags should be dirt cheap for residents only.

Exactly. For the kid to hunt with the reduced price tag, dad has to buy a full price tag.

You do understand that Dad has to buy a full price tag for the kids to tag along on the discount tag, right?   :bdid:

Actually if there is a resident friend or family then the kid can hunt with them, but I understand your point. Also just checked they changed the law to only needing to be accompanied by a license holder, no more tag required

Us non-resident hunters need to realize that to State lawmakers and wildlife officials, "out of state hunters", are nothing but a high paying money source.  They don't care all that much about your youth.  They don't want to sell a tag at a reduced price when they are turning away others that are willing to pay full price no matter what your age, gender, veteran status, and so-on.  There loyalty is to there constituents and their state public.  They can pad their pockets and still offer a quality experience to their citizens and keep their fees at a minimum.  They could care less that out of state hunters aren't happy.  All that they care about is that their quota is sold and the money is coming!  They will raise prices and continue to raise prices until the number of "out of state hunters" equals the exact amount of licenses they are willing to sell.  Its all a business model to them and nothing more.  I'm not saying that I agree with any of  this.  Its just the way it is.

Not so. This is from the online regs.

"Deer - Jr.
Mentored and Disabled American Veteran (DAV) Must have either a Junior Mentored hunting or a Nonresident DAV hunting license. Those with a Junior Mentored hunting license must be accompanied by an adult with a tag(s) for the same species. The junior mentored/DAV deer tags are not valid for bear, mountain lion or gray wolf. Price not valid for nonresident general season deer or elk tags purchased as second tags."

This may be a dumb question, but if the legislature is going to vote on this in 2020, when will it take effect?  2020 or 2021?  I don't know how they set their seasons or when the tags officially go on sale.  If it's like WA, then most things voted into law don't go into effect until July 1.  Might be wishful thinking, but hoping for one more year at the current prices.

This would be great for me. I'm trying to move to Idaho, but I won't be there in time for resident tags next year.
