Complaining on this site about the way Idaho sells nonresident tags is about as effective as complaining on Fox News about people who support gun control. Nothing will ever change.

True, but people always complain. I once heard an Admiral say “no one likes change, except a baby”. As out of state hunters we should be kissing Idaho’s butt. We are in a battle for our hunting privileges in Washington, and you’re gonna complain about hunting out of state? People should more concerned about the home front. Adapt to the system, it’s still way batter than Washington draw odds for a resident. Yes, the it can be difficult to get a tag. Yes, you may have to learn how to hunt solo. Yes, you might get to learn how to hunt to new areas. But, you’re still hunting!

the problem became worse when the tag allocations were changed for deer tags per unit and elk tags from unlimited in many zones(until non res quota was gone) to very few tags in some of these zones. made everything a pain in the ass.

In 3 to 5 years I expect a draw for non-residents, and complaining about the current system now will only push it there! So many people complain, I think Idaho should be commended for trying to keep away from more draws. When it goes to a draw all the tag services will be advising their customers to apply, I guarantee you it will only get tougher to get a tag. I'm not bad mouthing tag services, just stating what I believe will happen.  :twocents:

I think if you were all smart, you would write Idaho and thank them for not going to a draw, and then suggest a few modifications to make it more fair. You catch a lot more flies with honey than vinegar!
Americans are systematically advocating, legislating, and voting away each others rights. Support all user groups & quit losing opportunity!

http://bearpawoutfitters.com Guided Hunts, Unguided, & Drop Camps in Idaho, Montana, Utah, and Wash. Hunts with tags available (no draw needed) for spring bear, fall bear, bison, cougar, elk, mule deer, turkey, whitetail, & wolf! http://trophymaps.com DIY Hunting Maps are also offered

   I agree with all of this and I will add a point system will be added also. Idaho is missing out on a lot of revenue currently compared to other western states.

I agree that the deterioration of Washington hunting rights and opportunities is far worse than getting a tag for Idaho. Unfortunately as Washington destroys hunting opportunities it will only get worse in other states to get nonresident tags.

Lol, so not only did they let you know they don’t care but they are telling you they will brag even louder what they are doing. Pretty soon they are going to line up at the boarder with tags hanging from sticks on strings that they pull away as you reach for it.
