Default What type of tag?

Should a tag, for example an elk tag, more specifically let's say a non-resident tag be good for an entire season, or a specific season?

should a non-res have to pick bow, ML, rifle and only get to hunt one season, or should a tag be good for the entire full season?

In many states it seems there's a week between the end of bow season and the start of rifle season, therefore, a non-res would have to make 2 trips, not be able to hunt both seasons.

In many cases I feel most non-res are only going to hunt one season or the other, less they happen to live closeby in say a neighboring state, but easterners I don't think are going to be making multiple trips.

I've heard the argument that a full season tag encourages rifle hunters to kinda wing it during the bow season, which means not very serious bowhunters increasing pressure during that season.

I voted for the second choice, season specific. I think we would all like the first choice but it be unrealistic in terms of management and would seriously cut down on the number of tags issues. The states will never give up that much money.

WY and MT I know both have full season general tags...good for at least bow and rifle. With some exceptions...

I agree I think a state could issue more tags if they broke up the seasons....and also have less pressure, or at least the same pressure with more tags issued.

Like NM, has 3 bow seasons/tags, 1 ML, and 1 rifle I believe...that's 5 tags/seasons where WY would be 1 tag.

Here in NV everyone is season/weapon specific.

If you draw a rifle deer tag, you only get to hunt the rifle season, or a muzzle loader elk tag, only the muzzle loader season, etc.

The season lengths are actually pretty good though for each weapon, with plenty of time to get an animal.

I voted number 2

Later,

In montana, you really don't have season specific tags. You can archery hunt during rifle season but you have to follow rifle regulations. And there isn't a muzzleloader specific season either.
