I think tag prices may come down, and they will sell out this year for sure, but I think people, non-residents are done with failing to draw a special tag and then hunting with the general, so even more generals will be turned back this year unless they fix that application process.

I know if i don't draw a special elk tag this year, I'm turning it back in for the 85% refund or whatever.

Also in years past I would apply for the big game combo, but now with increased prices I think it may just be the elk combo instead, I'm sure others are going to be doing this as well.

Might mean more deer tags available and better deer drawing odds now...

It would be interesting to see who will pick up the difference if there is a shortfall in revenue. I am willing to bet it will be resident hunters.

So what does it cost a non res for a qualified guide ? food, housing, + tag.
That would be more helpful should I want to come out there. and also what is the success ratio?
