Not 50, but a good 20+ for me...seeing exactly the same thing. It's getting really hard to justify a deer tag, and as an nr native I even get them half price. I can't say for sure that I've bought my last, but it's likely.
IMO it's the most overrated and overpriced big game tag in the west for NRs if you are strictly hunting public land. My last three tags all went unfilled and in the garbage at $700 a pop. Lots of other fun hunt options out there.
