 A dead elk is a dead elk. A dead deer is a dead deer.  The fact LG states he buys a second tag but then slams NR  hunters for actually filling those tags is the icing on the cake. So now killing a mature breeder bull or buck ( which he implies he would/has done ) has less impact than shooting a younger male? Maybe someone needs to go back to game management 101?

They bought a tag. They can spend it however they see fit within the rules set forth by the IDFG. Thinking that because you ate a tag simply because the number one breeder didn't cross your path, is not only arrogant but foolish

I do understand the point that washington hunters flock to idaho and montana because of the better game management and experience Instead of demanding the same out of there own state.  I wish we could redirect those out of state dollars we spend and used that money to make difference in our own state.

Because the money would not go to WDFW it would go other places and WDFW his shown they do not know how to manage wildlife for the benefit of hunters.

I'll probably never hunt Idaho.  Montana, yes.  Montana seems to want my business.
Yea because nothing says we want your business like $700 deer tags or $900 elk tags

Nice to see someone giddy about fellow hunters getting priced out of hunting. Way to be a team player.
:yeah:exactly, hunters are our own worst enemy.  Bow hunters think rifle guys suck, rifle guys think bow hunters suck, muzzy guys are left behind, NOT.  And if you don't like bear baiting or hound hunting, even as a hunter, you vote against it!!!   Fellow hunters are why we can't hunt bear or cats with dogs, and bait.  Fellow hunters love rate increases on nonresidents and taking youth prices off the table.  We really are our own worst enemy.  Sad deal
“In common with”..... not so much!!
