I sent him an e-mail stating my concerns. Here is his response:
We never have suggested a 50/50 split for tags only a equal chance of
drawing. If 90 % of the applications are resident then approx. 90% of the
tags should go to residents.
You are wrong about who owns the wildlife, it does belong to everyone as a
renewable natural resource. The states are charged with the management,
and because of this decision, they cannot discriminate against other
So that tells you right there he wants everyone to have the same chance across the nation. If 99% of the applicants are non-residents then 99% of non-residents get the tags. Here the e-mail addy if you'd like to send him something.
