Default Man those special tags are expensive! Donations?

WY special tags...essentially twice the price, ouch!

But I couldn't wait...

But seeing that final checkout price vs. standard price, lil sticker shock.


Seems every state I apply to asks for a donation, do you guys donate? I wonder how many hunters donate vs. don't donate, and how much? If everyone just gave a buck I'm sure it would add up, wonder if alot of guys just click "NO" instead of donating a buck, what do you think?

I always donate extra to Wyoming. I do not donate extra to any other state.

Depends on the cause, but I usually do. Access, non-game, hunters for the hungry, SAR are pretty good causes in my opinion. I sort of think of it as the high road for hunters and fishermen compared to other outdoor pursuits that don't contribute much back to the resources.

I'd certainly donate an extra buck to get my refund back in less than 2 months...less than a month would be awesome!

You're kidding right

I buy or apply for enough licenses just in CO to cover any potential donations. They hold my money from March til June-July every year.

The DOW here makes enough silly decisions with the money they already get. Throwing more at them won't help.
