You guys from out of state have a point system that will genrally allow you a tag in three or four years. Instaters have no such system. it sucks!
Some states actually gather the bulk of their license revenue from out of state hunting and fishing. I don't know what the in state tag cost is, but the price for out of state may be just short of a king's ransom, and the division may be reserving the very best service for the guys who have to wait on the list and pony up $1-2,000 for a tag.
