Idfg is facing a difficult reality- a growing resident population putting more pressure on resources and growing demand from non residents who have contributed substantial finances to some rural communities as well the department budget.  Not going to be an easy balance to find, but suspect the money crunchers will have the final say

Thatís good news. So now maybe you can sit at home for the chance at a tag instead of having to drive to Idaho for a chance at a tag.

Idaho: Donít change a thing please!  Current system works well for my hunting group.   If you do change add points so we can plan on every other year like MT.
Between the 3 different forums Iíve seen this bill posted, this is the first comment out of a couple hundred thatís been Pro Points system lol

I would be a pro wyoming style draw. You look at the unit you want to hunt, see how many points it takes to draw, buy points every fall and plan. Itís simple and you can plan your hunts many years in advance. Right now you can hunt Wyoming every year or every other year for deer if you want to. I like that. I feel Like without driving to Idaho and standing in line all night I don't even have Idaho as an option.

Maybe some of this tag pressure will subside once you can play hunting video game and get an AI generated totally real looking grip and grin to post on Instagram?

  nonsense!  It's a money thing again. Instead of just selling 12,000 ( or whatever the number is) non resident tags they can still sell em but probably get twice that amount from people buying a license and paying the application fee hoping to draw.  That's more of a government thing these days. Pretty confident they'll be no refund if you don't draw

guaranteed there is no license refund and why would they do that? the demand far exceeds the people who will not choose to buy a license and not hunt Idaho. I will always buy one and will always get a tag.

If you like Idaho the way it is I assume you think we should make every state similar? So if you want to hunt Alaska, you have to fly to Alaska, stand in line and have a 50/50 chance of getting a tag?

I think giving everyone in the country a similar chance to get a tag online is a good thing. Washington residents shouldnít have the special privilege to hunt Idaho. Just because we are next door.

If you have to pay upfront I think they will continue to be a refund. Much like putting in for moose. I donít think anybody would be putting up the 2500 bucks or whatever it is up to now if you didnít get that back when you didnít draw, I sure as hell wouldnít be. A few years of not drawing your moose, deer, elk, etc  in Idaho with no refunds and you could have just paid for your guaranteed  Canada trip. However you see it definitely time to have more than one or two states on your radar if we plan on hunting every year now. Sure is depressing

I hunt Alaska and Idaho and you can pickup the phone and call to buy tags from both states. Someone in Texas has just as good of chance calling and buying tags as a person from Washington. I have always got my tags for Idaho by being ready to call when they open. I hate that they are switching it. We have a long standing tradition of hunting the same spot with family from 3 different states and have had up to 12 people in our camp sometimes hunting. All the grandkids got to hunt with their grandparents. I donít see us continuing this. We started there in the late 60ís and have hunted there every year. Part way through we started having every one sign the ceiling of the wall tent and put there shots up there, the memories for our families where always about looking forward to every one getting together for this hunt.
Know because they want it to be ďfairĒ we will probably not be able to continue because I donít see a group of twelve being able to draw together and family is not going to want to fly from Alaska down here for their one week of hunting to watch the other adults or kids hunt. Time is limited on being able to get kids out to have a opportunity to hunt and this will only break up families that teach their next generation hunting skills and lessons from past hunts written on the ceiling.

the license portion will absolutely be non refundable. They likely won't collect for the tag portion up front. Most states don't.  Purchasing a qualifying license to apply isn't a new thing. States like UT, CO, NV, and AZ to name a few already do this. So everyone be ready to be out $185 for their big game license plus $15 app fee to apply in ID

 :yeah:  There are plenty of states, like Oregon, that you have to buy a license just to buy a point even if you don't apply.
