    Default A pain in the............

    Wow! I just bought my 2010 resident Maine hunting license. I get the combo hunt/fish. I also added the bear, waterfoul, archery, and night coyote. I didn't get turkey ($20 for spring and $20 for fall) like I did last year and I paid over $135!! So, my question..how bad does it hurt to hunt in your state?

    Got a relative in Northern Maine that put his wife's name in on this years moose permits just for fun. She got it, her son taught her to shoot and she got one. She said 750lbs. They were a menace to traffic last time I was there.

    Whoa, Whooa , whoa! You have to pay for a bear tag now??? The last time I got a combo license in Maine (1994) it was either $16 or $18 and had a deer and bear tag, then you could put in for a doe tag as well but that was free. You didn't need a tag for coyote/coydogs. Smallest whiteTail i took in Maine was 197lbs dressed out most were right at 200lbs dressed out and i've seen some monsters that just had me gawking instead of shooting. Never got picked for the moose lottery and turkeys had just opend up.
    As for California, it is so cost prohibitive to hunt and the blacktails are the size of a Doberman. The only thing worth hunting here is pig and i refuse to, cause i want to see them over run the damm cities.
    I know what hunts you.

    Rules and reg, you know.. You can still hunt bear during regular deer season without the special license. Doe tags are still free but only because SAM got it written into law years ago. 1994 was the first y ear I hunted here and coyote night hunting was $2 then. I was drawn for a moose tag so I have to wait two years before I can try again. If you are drawn that is $75 or something like that. The biggest buck for me was 209 lbs.

    When I lived in NorCal 2000 - 04 a pig license was just 7.95 and it was 6 kill tags and you could buy a lincense a day. I killed a lot of pigs, 50-80 pounds live weight usually and sometimes stoats, just dressed them, split them and either, froze, smoked or grilled them that way. never killed a blacktail but tried valiantly. Never drew an elk, antelope or sheep tag.
    Michigan(my boyhood home was very resonable BUT seemed hard to draw tags).
    Indiana is still reasonable but we only have deer as a big game species. Feral/wild pigs are free here but hard to find. In fact they are not just free. IDNR begs us to kill them.
    nonresident deer is only $100 or so and $20 for a antlerless tag.

    The whole state of Alaska must be the welfare state everyone is always talking about. So that's where my tax money goes. No wonder they built a pipeline up there. They had to streamline the shipping of money from Washington to Alaska. Where's my pitchfork?!

    You need to live in Alaska a full calender year before you establish residency. I've wanted to live there since my 20s but none of the woman I've been involved with has been up for it. As I understand it if you want a woman in your life in Alaska you need to bring one with you. Also the land of the Midnight Sun and the 28 days of darkness wear on people who grew up below the 50th parallel.

    When I first started I could get a Sportsman's license which included everything except does, bear, elk, turkey and waterfowl. $45!

    Since then they did away w' the sportsman's license and now it costs me

    15 for firearm deer
    15 for bow-actually it's a combo license now w' two tags
    4 for doe app.
    15 for doe tag if drawn
    15 for small game
    15 for coldwater fish
    15 for trout

    $94!
    plus a state park sticker $24
    metropark sticker $20
    and an orv sticker $16.75 ish
    plus an Ohio non-resident fishing $40

    So, $195 or so, but I can't trap, harvest fur, hunt bear, turkey, waterfowl, elk. That all costs extra.

    If I want to use a state boat launch I also have to pay another 24, plus another 24 for metropark boat sticker.

    If I hunted and fished like I used to it'd easily cost me 300-400 for everything, or more.

    That sounds cool! So what does it cost you to live up there?
