Yup...some states are like that but in others non-resident tags are limited and people have to enter a drawing for them. From what I've read in Iowa it takes a few years to just draw an archery tag. It's very tough to draw a rifle tag in North Dakota. If some of these states didn't limit the number of non-resident licenses they would be overrun with hunters. Iowa has the reputation for monster whitetails, so if they didn't limit the number of licenses they sold the number of hunters would skyrocket and the quality of the hunting would go down the tubes. Same for places like Montana.
