This years Non-Resident permits equaled out to roughly 16% of the total permits given. 44 was the total I counted. No doubt people buy licenses to hunt Sundays but not all those people will put in for a Moose permit.
Bottom line is if we capped it at 10% it would result in 16 more permits for residents. This would equal roughly $2400 in revenue for Fish and Game ($150 for the moose permit, and I assuming these people would buy the hunting license whether or not they won a permit) versus $9600 in revenue if you add the $500 permit fee and $100 for a non-resident hunting license.
$7200 might not seem like much but it all goes towards Moose herd management.
Keep the tradition alive and take a kid hunting!!!!
Honor our soldiers. Their sacrifice has given us our freedom.
