I think you're right about paying for each one. I started second guessing myself after I applied for their tags thinking maybe they could have gotten a mule deer tag along with an elk tag for one price as a youth. I was going to revise my application if it were so. Thanks
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
