    Thanks for asking this question. I was asking myself the same thing last night but didn't take the time to look in the regs. Guess I'll need to get one, as I'll be passing in and out of areas where I need a tag this weekend and other times throughout the year. Guess it'll be worth the $25 investment.

    Better to have one and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

    $25 is waaaaay cheap. Make sure to register in all the units you may be in. I've building a collection of unused locking tags.

    Default Resident Grizz tag no longer needed in Region III

    Just an fyi for those who may not know. Board of Game at the March meeting passed a proposal exempting all resident hunters from needing a grizzly bear locking tag in all of Region III. It applies to GMUs 12, 19, 20, 21, 24, 25, and subunits 26B & 26C.

    However, I have not confirmed yet whether this new regulation legally goes into effect at the start of the regulatory year on July 1, 2010. Someone should call F&G on that.

    Correct but on Bushrats note there the regs for the resident wont take affect until JULY 1 new reglatory year... so this spring you will need a new locking tag next fall you will not.
