MI, CO, WY,IL,OH,CA,SD, hopefully I can add IA to the list this year.
I realize that Cory; I'm still surprised.
My point is, if you take Tule out of the equation, the number of non residents would go down substantially IMO.
In my mind-all of them. In reality-SC
Planning to bowhunt Tule in CA in '18 if the ranch gets their normal elk allocations. Will be my first foray into the Golden State to hunt...and if a successful hunt, likely my last, although a backpack Blacktail bowhunt into the "Alps" always sounded interesting.
Mn. Wisc. Mich. N.D. Col. Mont. Neb. Tx. Ak. Ont. Quebec.
Over 50 years here in Va. Haven't gotten tired of it yet.........One
IL WI MI CO WY TN FL Ontario 5 times
"My point is, if you take Tule out of the equation, the number of non residents would go down substantially IMO."
We'd still get quite a few coming for their Blacktail also...
