I like this coment
"A smart guy in Kansas or Wyoming is a lot more likely to hunt than a dumb guy in New York City."

10 questions and the guy can make valid comments, more like assumptions?
They mention Baseball that smart people gravitate to. They do not play it they watch it.
People hunt and fish not just watch , well most people that is.

Some hunters are dumb - yes. I read right here on MWT that Illinois hunters aren't happy that Missouri is raising non resident hunting licenses. These Illinois hunters think Missouri residents should pay more for resident hunting so the non residents don't get an increase in fees. These socialist commie idiots are the dumbest around.

The only thing I think license price wise is if you own a dwelling and pay property taxes on a house and land in a state you should get a resident license price regardless where your permanent residency is.You can still be listed as a non-resident for draw hunts and whatever like in states like Iowa.But no way someone who owns a house and land should have to pay the same as the average non-resident.Also I think there should be a separate license nation wide to hunt National Forest and everyone should pay the exact same nation wide.

I disagree if that is all you are paying is taxes on property and not contributing anything else to the state you do not reside in

If you have a house you are buying groceries,having maintenance done,paying for any additions,paying your electric bill,paying your water bill,garbage,and anything else you may need in that state every single time you visit it.You are spending plenty money every time you go there.You can't just buy a house and let it sit with nothing hooked up and rot away.Many people retire or have so much free time they spend their time often in their vacation/get away homes.I feel like if you are that invested in a place and love it that much there should be some benefit to it.Bare land is a little different

No state income tax. The majority of your sales taxable income spent out of state. Its not the same as residency.

Who cares there are plenty of residents that don’t pay state income tax and get government assistance so you can’t use that as the definitive reasoning.Buying property,investing in the state,and spending time there holds more water to me than someone renting and living off government assistance.So if people who pay no taxes at all but happen to sleep in a bed in a state are considered residents of the state then I think there should be exceptions for home owners.Because the real definition of someone who is considered a resident is their address happens to be in a state it has nothing to do with paying taxes or any of that cause lord knows plenty of people don’t pay a dime.I don’t think my opinion is too bad of reasoning to catch a break on fishing and hunting licenses as a promotion to boost the real estate and economy in states that could use the extra capital.For instance if a state like Iowa or Kansas did that,and their real estate market would be booming.Idk just my opinion I know most wont agree

I would rather pay a little more for a tag than buy a house to get a discount that wouldnt pay for the house in multiple lifetimes.

I would too but if you liked visiting and wanted a vacation home somewhere all I'm saying is you should get a few perks to it.

Kansas gives a discount to non-resident landowners but who wants to vacation land in Kansas? They opened that up a few years ago and quiet a few people have gotten caught trying to scam the rules,, kind of like guys with LLC's here

. I support a nonresident landowner tag if someone owns enough land to provide wildlife habitat for a reasonable amount of wildlife and want to restrict their hunting to that land.
