I'm thinking 100.00-150.00 for an out of state tag would be fair. This is for deer hunting, animals such as elk oviously would require higher fees ect.

couldnt agree more with hm,let me give you an example.my neighbors own 90 acres next to me and pay taxes in new york both county and school tax and are probably paying more than most locals yet there out of state license is around 250 for everything.thats ridiculous.why would anyone want out of state licenses to cost more.there bringing revenue to the economy and are hunting public land or with an outfitter.the attitude of wanting everything to cost more is killing the average hunter.some of these businesses in small towns count on the out of state revenue.dont understand why fellow hunters would want anything to be costly and like hm said you should be able to hunt anywhere in the us at a reasonable cost.

Default We live in a time of high user taxes..

I was thinking that we are constantly paying more and more for things that were at one time very inexpensive. One way States pay for their DNR departments is to charge out of State users a premium to share in the outdoor recreation in their State. I think that politicians find it an easy source of extra money. The people visiting don't vote in their State so they don't have to worry about backlash. I always wanted to take my sons out west Elk hunting to Idaho. I am lucky to have gone twice. I would be scared to find out what the license fee is currently for out of State hunters. I would complain about the Outfitter costs but atleast that is an entire industry employing many locals. States do make serious money from people coming into their State. I wish they could resist the urge to charge the high hunting fees but I guess we are stuck with them.
