It would just be less because they live here." Land owner write thier own tags with no fees, my son must buy a hunting permit, but no deer tag. My father, who used to own the property, now gets shafted, and must buy hunting permit and deer tag to hunt what used to belong to him. And the size of the property plays no role in the fees. I have 9 acreas that I can hunt, for any game fee free,(I don't know at this point if waterfowl is included or not, but as there is no water , I will not worry about that) I must follow all bag limits.
I am flip-flopping on my original post on this. I was basing my views on WI laws. I see your point about landowner's rights and agree. The charging of a landowner in the first place, would be something I would vote against if I counted. I guess if a state charges resident landowners a licensing fee, though, I THEN have no problem with that state charging non-resident landowners a non-resident fee(within reason). I do think some of those fees are ridiculous, though. The non-resident fee in WI is under $200 for anyone(it was $125 the last time I had to pay it, but I am sure it is more now), which is not unfair to ask non-residents to pay - IMO.
