Checking on non resident fees

If I hunt:

During gun season, just for a buck, on public land, the fee would be $101.70.

For archery season, an additional $26.70.

For antlerless deer, in archery season or gun season, an additional $26.70.

If incorrect, appreciate any input. Want to check my options. Not sure yet, what week I'd hunt.

Re: Checking on non resident fees

Yes extra tags and stamps can add up quickly. I'm sure a lot of other states are much worse, but still. That's why all I buy anymore is just the standard license. 26 bucks to kill a doe....no thanks

The sleep of a laborer is sweet, while the rich man tosses and turns, worried about his possessions.

Re: Checking on non resident fees

It does get expensive, last year i had General, 3 doe tags, bow, and muzzy. That comes to over $200.00. If they have a increase this year i hope they dont hit us nr too hard. Md. this year proposed a stiff increase and it got shot down. Someone can come to Md. as nr and pay less but take more game. For example in Md. you can take a buck with a bow, rifle, and muzzy for the same price and doe is included in the price. I own property in Pa. and pay taxs there would be nice for a break since im a Pa. tax payer.

Yes you do pay taxes here, but the PGC. gets none of your tax money that you pay to Pa.

Ever try W.Va? You can buy a bonus buck tag but it has to be purchased before the season comes in.

Re: Checking on non resident fees

Just because you own land in Pa., your still a non-resident of the state.

Before buying did you check to see what the hunting fees would be for a non-resident? Don't understand the conplaining of the Pa fees from non-residents, they are always higher then residents.

Did anyone complaining of non-resident hunting fees in Pa. ever research the other states....some are way more then here, way more.

26 dollars to hunt in a beautiful state and get a great deal of meat from...26 bucks to enjoy the hunt...26 bucks! Don't ever head out west if you think our prices are steep. I guess I love hunting too much to complain about an insignificant fee for a freezer filling venison. Just my humble opinion...

Re: Checking on non resident fees

I pay $20 for an extra turkey tag.

Some probably think its insane I have a $300 backpack as well what they dont understand is the functionality.

$400 for boots... $1000 or more in a bow

As a non res, id be going to Ohio first but if you have to come here then $200 is pocket change compared to most places.

Iowa for example

3 years of pref points @ $50 a point + the year you draw full price of the tag. Easy $700 to hunt for a week just in tags.

OTC elk, by the time you travel and incur all the expenses of getting it back + tags... $2k easy

Float trip moose in AK... $20k
Africa ... $10k easy

What I say might not be the popular trend but at least Im not afraid to speak my mind!
