I voted no and i would have voted no one million times if they would have let me. This is getting to be ridiculous...

This is very interesting. Has anyone seen why the outfitters want this?

I think hard core DIY hunters will buy tags immediately first of the year and sell out the quotas pretty quick (and getting more so in the future)

This would put tags in outfitter pockets they could sell trips later on.

I could think of a lot of reasons, older guys not well versed on each of the different states tag program, they live back east in some city and haven't hunted much in their lives (if at all) and want a hunt of a lifetime.

Million reasons why.

Seems like Bearpaw gave a pretty thorough explanation from the Outfitter's perspective

They want more tags for their clients and more clients could have to go to them to get a tag.

As hunters we cannot let this happen. Montana just tried to do something similar and at least they got rid of the outfitter guaranteed  percentages. The opportunities across the west for diy hunters are already dwindling...we cant let this happen.

Having spent the majority of my life up until this point as an Idaho DIY NR, I sent in a vote for NO on this proposal.

One of the coolest things America offers, unique compared to many other places around the world, is the ability to test your mettle on a DIY hunt.  I will push against anything that works to infringe on that.   :twocents:

Also, I don't think Idaho cares a bit about NR, so I'm not sure this is going to work out well for those in my camp.

Maybe if this doesn’t pass Idaho will pass a bill requiring nonresidents to use an outfitter in wilderness areas.
