IDFG may limit nonresident disabled veteran tags
« on: June 03, 2020, 08:48:58 PM »
Idaho is considering limiting the number of discounted non-resident disabled veteran deer and elk tags.  Apparently the tag sales are increasing each year to the point they are starting to have concerns about the numbers.  It's impossible to adequately thank our veterans and active duty military for their service, especially those who were injured - or never made it home.  However, I do support this proposal given the increase in numbers - in part because I know of so many great programs and people who help veterans with hunts.

I think a better alternative would be to make them choose either a deer or elk tag at the DAV price

There might be a clue to the real concern in the proposed solution - cap them and sell the rest a full price tag.  Another solution would be to include the DAV tags in the statewide NR limit.

rolling it into the NR quota is the best option. Give them a discount but we can't ignore sound management practices. This is another another byproduct of the massive influx of new residents.

Thank you for posting this. I submitted a comment. I bought a hunting DAV license & deer tag this year & probably will not even hunt ID & will continue to do so as long as a can use this program.  :tup:

How about another idea is to quit allowing residents to buy tags also till later if at all?  Que the Idaho residents! :chuckle:

Before limiting anything I would look at how DAV tags are affecting the harvest. Are all the DAV folks actually hunting? I know a buddy of mine bought the tags, but did not hunt, didn't even show up. I would also look at the percentage of DAV folks that are actually harvesting animals. As you know just because you buy a tag it does not mean you are going to get something. I would check out the above before I would risk loosing an income resource. I did not hunt the openers for elk or deer, I really did not notice hunter congestion.

Then it's a revenue issue as they would lose selling NR full price tags.  My guess is that is one of the reasons it was originally not included and now they are selling too many DAV tags to ignore any longer.

If they put them within the quota, they would lose out on $698,000 just in elk tags.

Yea, there's not a chance they roll these into the existing nr quota due to the revenue issue.  Especially since they are raising prices and cutting nr quota next year.  Keeping them separate, but limiting them should keep most folks happy  :dunno:

I started hunting Idaho 4 years ago because of this program.  I don't think capping them is a terrible idea.  Its a great thing ID does for us, but if it's being overused, I'd rather see it controlled than eliminated. 
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.  That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
