A promising direction
« on: September 05, 2019, 07:22:03 AM »
https://idfg.idaho.gov/press/fg-commission-looks-manage-nonresident-hunters-and-seeks-nonresident-fee-increase


looks like a good start. hopefully some semblance of what there talking about goes through. fee hike is a guarantee but man would it be awesome to limit non res tags by unit.

I'll probably never hunt Idaho.  Montana, yes.  Montana seems to want my business.

Nice to see someone giddy about fellow hunters getting priced out of hunting. Way to be a team player.
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.

I have heard that one of the reasons Idaho was able to keep there prices lower for their residents was the sale of non resident tags helped off set the difference, I would think this to be true since IFG sends me reminders all year long to not forget to purchase my license! If they are trying to slow down the sale of their non resident licences they will eventually have to reach into the pockets of the residents to make up the short fall. I always think its interesting when people complain about out of state hunters yet not only are they paying a premium to play but also helping the surrounding communities economies.

So it sounds to me that you just dont want non resident hunters coming to Idaho? Do you hunt other states or Idaho only?

@lord grizzly
Here's a suggestion from me to you. If you're opposed to out of state hunters coming to Idaho, you might consider spending more time on an Idaho hunting forum and less time on a Washington hunting forum.
You making threads like this are part of the problem with hunting and a lack of unity among hunters.

Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

idaho residents continue to complain about non resident hunters being the big influx.  non res tags are limited to a quota, and have been selling out for a while (im talking elk here).  they'll still sell out after a price hike, maybe not as fast, but they will.  i would'nt be complaining about the non residents coming in as their tag revenue is astronomical.
here's the kicker.
let's look at the real variable here.....idaho RESIDENT growth..  :sry:
i'm not trying to start an argument here as it looks like idaho prices are just getting more in line with other western states for non res...just be glad idaho isnt like colorado..between deer, elk, pronghorn in 2018, colorado sold 88k tags. yes 88,000.
Non resident in idaho currently pays about 570 bucks for a tag and license(proposed will be 833 for tag and license)...a resident can pay like 150 bucks and get all their big game tags and a hunting/fishing license..or roughly 50 bucks for an elk tag and license.
so..simple math, if non residents JUST bought an elk tag and a license...you guys are all bitchin and moanin about people bringing in roughly $8M in additional revenue to help your resources? jeez

Grizzly Lord probably moved to Idaho from another state.
Many that do begin to take on this mentality once they become a "resident".

I'm with you.
It would be interesting to hear whether we're correct or not.
