What? They look pretty high to me. Non-res Antelope went from $270 to $400. Isn't that close to a 50% raise? Then there's the Cost of Living Index increases that could raise tag prices annually.

I went to a fisheries meeting last night and got a fee increase handout from the Game & Fish Dept. Man, there's 93 licenses on the list! There are no proposed increases for any of the youth licenses.

The Department itself is not so sure the bill will pass. The Travel, Recreation, Wildlife and Cultural Resources Committe (TRWCR) is made up of fiscal conservative state congressman and senators. They are caught up in the conservative "no mo government," "no mo taxes," thing like their big brothers in Washington DC. So the Wyoming Game & Fish Dept. could be faced with up to a 20% budget reduction for 2014. That is not counting the 3% budget reduction the Department did for 2013.

About 13 hunting, fishing and conservation groups are working together lobbying the TRWCR to pass the fee increase proposal.

These are exactly what I had seen before. In many cases I don't think the price increase is too bad. I'd rather they not include a fishing/small game license with antelope and deer as it increases the cost more. Antelope goes from $270 to $400. That's a 48% increase. I know you get to fish, but for those who just want to shoot a goat - that's quite the jump. Same with deer, going from 310 to 480 - an even bigger increase on 55%.

I could very well see it if they'd dump off $90-$100 for the fishing license, or at least make it an option.

On lines 9 thru 19, I interpreted it as,
elk -$480 to $600
deer- $240 to $300
Antelope - $240 to $300
Correct or not?

9 (i) Nonresident elk license ...... $480.00
10 $600.00 in addition to the license fee imposed under
11 paragraph (j)(xix) of this section;
12
13 (ii) Nonresident deer license .... $240.00
14 $300.00 in addition to the license fee imposed under
15 paragraph (j)(xv) of this section;
16
17 (iii) Nonresident antelope license ..... $240.00
18 $300.00 in addition to the license fee imposed under
19 paragraph (j)(xxxi) of this section.

Are they making it mandatory small game/fish along with the permit?


The first numbers I saw had elk at $750, deer and antelope @ $500..

Well that's what the fee is increased to but it also says: "in addition to the license fee imposed under
19 paragraph (j)(xxx) of this section.

Read down and see that in the specified section of paragraph J, the additional license fee is an additional small game/fishing license. Elk has been this way for a while, but deer and antelope haven't. They're piggybacking a mandatory small game and fishing licenses on these tags, so you get 2 licenses for one price, one of which likely wouldn't have been purchased by most deer and antelope hunters.

This increases the overall tag price for those who wouldn't otherwise be be fishing or hunting small game.

I need to look into this a little more, to see if it optional but I was under the assumption it was mandatory.

Yeah, I seen that too. It's a little confusing to me too. There's 3 types of nonres antelope tags:

> Nonres Antelope plus fishing and small game for $400
> Nonres Antelope Special went to $300 plus the $400 special tag fee for a total of $700.
> Nonres youth plus fishing and small game stays at $110

The Special tags are super high-priced but your chances to draw are usually 100%. They are the regular tag price plus the Special tag fee. The regular deer elk and antelope tags have fishing and hunting so yes, the Special tags will include those too.


2014 Nonres Special License proposal:
Antelope - $700
Deer - $780
Elk - $1,250

Residents aren't "Special" like you fellas; we don't have special tags.

Those are the Special fees. Add them to the tag price.

9 (i) Nonresident elk license ...... $480.00
10 $600.00 in addition to the license fee imposed under
11 paragraph (j)(xix) of this section;
12
13 (ii) Nonresident deer license .... $240.00
14 $300.00 in addition to the license fee imposed under
15 paragraph (j)(xv) of this section;
16
17 (iii) Nonresident antelope license ..... $240.00
18 $300.00 in addition to the license fee imposed under
19 paragraph (j)(xxxi) of this section.

For that particular license, yes.

Then you have to add the Special fee. $400 for antelope for a total of $700 for Nonresident Special Antelope
