My brother was just transfered to Colorado by a phone company.He was living in Mo,and looking forward to deer season.My nephew (10 yrs old)got
his 1st turkey this year,and was looking for his 1st deer.I bought him a new Browning bow and Gold tips fletched with Blazers .They made the move to South Colorado and were excited about a chance to get a Muley.Heres the kicker,Colorado law says NO HUNTING unless you've been a resident for six months.He could buy a nonresident license,but its $500.He said he'd just wait.I'm most dissappointed about the nephew.Thats the breaks tho.

Man that sucks but if it meant the difference of hunting or not, I wouldn't hesitate to drop the $500 for the NR license.

Coming from someone from Illinois, where they want $500:)eek: )for a NR Whitetail Tag, I am not surprised. Remember, it would cost $500 each, actually, I think the deer tag is around $300, so for the two of them they'd be looking at $600!!!!!! I agree that's a tough call, but I believe most STATES, including OHIO require 6months residency prior to buying a "Resident" License.

Why cant they come home for deer season, or at least a weekend?
Technically they are no longer residents!


It does suck for them, but there are ways around it. Being in the Marine Corps, I have bought a resident license in a bunch of states, and typically all they ask is if you are or aren't and most of the time you just put a check in the box yourself. I would still go and try to pick one up if I were them..

there's a few "leftover" tags available.

Someone is stretching the truth on the cost of nonresident tags.

Almost sounds like he's talking about landowner vouchers.

That's great, I can move to Iowa at the end of the season and get residency before the end of your season.:wink:

Maybe after seeing these high non resesident tag prices he will understand what many of us go through every year and start trying to help out with the situation instead of trying to price the average man out of hunting.

Colorado is still one of the best values for the Non-Res hunter. We have the best mule deer herd in the country, don't tell anyone though. We have the highest elk population in the country. This makes it the best value as well, due to the high hunter success rates.

It's probably easier to say this when you are not forking out a thousand dollars for a couple of tags.

I hate to break the news to you but:
Colorado requires youths to be 12 years of age to hunt big game.
They also must have passed a Hunter Safety course.
There is a break for youth licenses, in the form of reduced fee

They may be better off going back to MO for deer season this year.
