Some states take advantage of the nonresident's willingness to pay exorbitant rates. Look at sheep tags, for example. In Wyoming, a sheep tag costs a nonresident $1,510. As a resident, I pay $78. The same disproportionate fee structure applies to most states. In New Mexico, a nonresident pays $3,016 for a sheep tag, while a resident pays $99. New Mexico offers only a dozen or so sheep tags annually. Residents and nonresidents have an equal chance of drawing, but in many years no nonresidents draw. The state is blatantly saying, "Only the wealthy need apply." That's outrageous. If those nonresident tags were generating a considerable amount of revenue, one might understand the high fee, but the nonresident money is insignificant. Out-of-state hunters are being punished unfairly, and you must truly be well off to afford a sheep tag anywhere in the West.
