Well, ain’t that a kick to the nuts. I’ve managed to get tags every year by staying ahead of the curve.

Can't say I blame them.  How many Washington hunters are now looking towards Idaho for their hunting opportunities now that Washington is so mismanaged.   They also have to respond to their boost in residents now that Washington is so uninhabitable.

Pretty much expected
They'll still make the money plus some...still issue all tags available..

Without the hassle and the chaos of December one day madness.

Honestly, why wouldnt it?   I can't imagine a resident opposing it, except maybe a store owner

Seems like its a bill to solve the problem Idaho has every December.  At least this way you know the odds of getting a tag vs. waiting in line or online hoping there is something left.  :dunno:

Will there be a points system for NR like most other states?

This just makes me ill. They could tweek a few things and the Dec 1 tag sale would go so smooth. Now we are gonna be forced into yet another draw system. So instead of hunting idaho every year, there will be no guarantee of a tag unless you apply for something that has hundreds of tags like 39 and 43 deer. 

And how will the draw be conducted? 1, 2, 3, or 4 choices? Group apps? Point system? Will leftover tags also go to a draw? This is a prime example of hunters being their own worst enemy imo. One of the few otc opportunities left in the west and we are gonna piss it down the drain🤦‍♂️

If only they would have stopped in person Non Res sales and be forced to sign into your online account to eliminate multiple devices/bots for one person to be entered into the waiting room.   

People took too much advantage of the "loopholes" and others complained.

Suspect there will of course be an application fee.  Probably end up up.giving out the same amount of tags but is a way to rsise the cost a bit plus make extra money from those who apply  but don't draw.

Anyone catch the "licensed" to hunt portion.

So pre purchase of license. That could be a deal breaker for allot.
