EOB: Limit Nonresident ‘Super Hunts’?

Rep. Steve Kren, R-Nampa, got himself peppered with questions today when he proposed legislation in the House Resources Committee to limit so-called “super hunts” mostly to state residents, allowing only 10 percent of the permits to go to non-residents. That’s the case already for most controlled hunts, but the super hunts are a special program in which about 40 tags are raffled off each year, allowing the winners to choose from any valid open hunt in the state. Kren said about 30 percent of the winners have been out-of-staters, and that’s gotten folks in his district grumbling/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.

Question: Do you support Rep. Kren’s idea re: limiting the number of nonresidents who can participate in Idaho’s “super hunts”?
