Default Another Expo Thread

We have talked about the Expo many times on here.. But...

If they allow nonres to put in for all the same tags as us AND give them their own poo as welll, because they "make the trip" to Utah and help our economy - Why not change it this year? No economic stimulation is occuring without the event happening.

Or follow other states steep non res changes for things like the expo?

This year with no in-person validation I expect big numbers. I think we would see those same big numbers if we charged $20 for non-res applications. Realistically I prefer nonres only being able to apply for certain tags. Especially since it's usually just celebs drawing OIAL tags.

What do you think? Where would you see an issue with this?

They already picked thier favorite buddies out as winners just waiting to announce it from the SFW's secret basement draw computer.

Good luck changing the system

Just a reminder that is 200 tags that would have increased a residents odds in the regular draw. But people keep supporting it.

I agree, I just don't see it changing... ever! It gets old seeing some folks that seem to get lucky year after year... Statistically, it's just not possible!

That said, I know 4-5 people that have drawn that have nothing to do with SFW.

This guy I have seen on the mountain a few times has slammed a few giant elk.. I was never sure if he was paying for tags or what.

Turns out he has gotten FOUR expo elk tags.


So, it happens. Just not to me lol.

Actually it would be a big financial win for the DWR if all the expo tag went to non residents. They pay much higher tag fees the residents.

If it's about money just auction them all off, while we are at it let's change the rules so the state can do it all themselves and close the loop hole for SFW to profit off them.

Could you imagine the odds of drawing ANY tag this year, with not having to validate in person?


If anyone has the list of successful draw results for the last five years, it would be interesting to see just how many of the same folks draw this year. Or, multiple permits since the birth of the Expo. Then see how/if they are affiliated with SFW, or donate $$$.

I seem to remember #elkfromabove addressed this very question a year or two ago. I tried the search function but didn't find it. I know he found some but not a lot.

One thing about it there is no shortage of conspiracy theories on these sites. People keep complaining but they still keep participating. When it no longer makes money maybe it will end.
