Re: Why haven't you bought your wolf tag yet

bng, you be way to innocent. I wodda said naive but I don't know how to spell naive.

I Idaho one purchases a required license. Then one gets an elk, deer, bear and mtn lion tag. Bear and mtn lion are just in case one happens along.

If/when \one is feeling charitable a woof permit is purposed. The woof tag limit is one or maybe two per purchaser, depending. Then comes the mathematical part, soon to be incorporated in most high end LRFs.... Tags = 1 or two. Mag holds 3 + 1. Go figure. The savvy woof getter uses enough projectile to ensure complete pass through regardless of the distance and only counts what is hauled home.

Only other option is a backhoe attachment for the ATV.

I shouldn't have said ranchers tag, it's a local joke! In MT all you need is a conservation and enhancement fee then a tag for the species your after, basically! You then have permits that you can get that can extend or enhance your tag in some areas.

LICENSE REQUIREMENTS COST
Conservation Required Prerequisite
$ 8 Resident
$ 10 Nonresident
Hunting Access

Enhancement
Fee
Annual fee charged at the time
the hunter purchases his/her first
hunting license.
$ 2 Resident
$ 10 Nonresident

Wolf Required
$ 19 Resident
$350 Nonresident

Re: Why haven't you bought your wolf tag yet

bng,

So I can roam around in Montana w/a rifle and shoot stuff for $20.00?

If true, I could then slip over onto the MT side and shoot back into Idaho w/o worry?

Hey, that would be better than dual citizenship...

Hey, just looking for any advantage....

Re: Why haven't you bought your wolf tag yet

Once new an old timer who shot wolves for bounty, both in Canada and here in US, made a lot of money at it too, back in the day.
I figure they, (USFW), have spent untold millions on this project run amok, OUR money by the way!
I will happily help correct the screw-up when THEY start paying ME! Or at the very least an embarrassed "Thank You"!

Yeah I know, wife and kid's tell me I'm prone to hallucinations.

A whole lot of places...but another guessed correctly, I drew a bow tag to Missouri Breaks this year and leave in 2 days for 1.5 weeks of heaven.

The area I usually rifle hunt has plenty of wolves, I've seen fresh tracks...the locals are all for me shooting wolves and I would LOVE to help them...but $350 for a tag, and decent chance of being checked by a game warden on the way out....sorry, I'm not going to risk my hunting priviledges over that. If MT wants wolves shot by NR, follow Idaho's lead and charge a reasonable non-resident price for a wolf tag. $30 for a lottery ticket on a wolf is not unreasonable.

Re: Why haven't you bought your wolf tag yet

there are some in the breaks we were up there on the 20 of aug for a rifle damage hunt. we had one of the cmr guys tell us they had seen 4 different animals 2 down by the pines and the others by crooked creek. i'm like you i think the lic price is to high but thats what happens when the management is by people who want a trophy system.
