I don't know what it's like in other states... but in IDAHO.... WE get a tag for everything....

1st, I buy a hunting/fishing combo, this piece of paper is 2.5" wide and about 8" long (NO jokes here ;))

THEN I get a Turkey tag, a Deer TAG, a ELK tag, A bear tag, steelhead, cougar..... MAN the list goes on.... Each tag is like 3.5" x 2.5"...... I also have to buy a archery stamp, waterfoul stamp, upland game, federal this, state that...... I need to get a Baiting permit, a hound hunters permit, muzzleloader stamp..... Actually I'm sure I buy more but can't remember them all...

I've in the last few years just bought a sportsmans pack that has 90% of the stuff in it and tell them I need everything I had last year......

I then grab a ZIP lock bag and put ALL these things in it. That-a-way I know I have everything I need for the hills when I go and it's all waterproof.....

I guess I was just wondering how big a book y'all have in the states you hunt.... I know HEre It is almost SILLY !!!!

We get a hunting license, with upland game stamp, migratory bird stamp and then tags for big game. Pig tags are cheap...you get something like 7 of them for about a buck apiece. Some deer tags are over the counter, but elk and antelope are drawing only (good luck!!!). I don't hunt bear, so I'm not familiar with them. The fishing license and hunting licenses are about 3 x 5, and most stamps just go on the back, like the saltwater stamp or inland waters stamp. The tags are about the same size.

Ah.......when I go home to hunt or fish Louisiana........all I have is a license that resembles a "credit card". It's hard plastic and on the front it says......"Lifetime License Holder"........and it entitles me to hunt or fish for aanything in La free until the day I die.......but I did have to lay down some serious duckies for it :eek:

Unless I draw something special like a moose or sheep tag, I purchase 12 tags every year. They are antelope, deer, elk, lion, bear, fishing, small game, trapping, duck stamp, conservation stamp, bear baiting permit and one nonresident tag for a change of pace.

It would sure be nice if Wyoming would condense all or most of those tags into one as some other states do.
