Perhaps you guys have forgotten economics 101 supply and demand dictate price, in this case supply is low and demand is high therefore the price of a sheep hunt if you live out of state is high. It is not that guides are greedy, they just charge what the market will bear. Its called capitalism.
Maybe you guys who are residents should be thankful you can hunt sheep for less then $100 if you are willing to work very hard, even less if you get really lucky. If sheep hunts for non residents didn't cost a second mortgage imagine how hard it would be to draw a permit, or how hard it would be to even find a "harvest" area.
Just a though, now back to your regularly scheduled guide/ AKPM flaming
