The Game and Fish is funded by the traditional "user pays" philosophy. This means that there is no general fund appropriated from the State for the Game and Fish. The funding comes mainly from the annual sales of licenses to hunters and fishermen. Of those sales, nonresident make up close to 70% of that funding.

I understand that the nonresident tags generate a significant amount of revenue but there is no possible way that out of state money is going to make or break the game and fish or any other entity in this state.
