I havent heard that about MO. If they double in price, it is still cheaper than soem of the others. When I hunted there it was $225 and OTC. I am paying nearly double that for KS for tags and license. I paid at least double when I hunted IL.
That is the reason that Mo. is going up on tags, because all of the neighboring states are higher and they don't want the next state hunters to get a second buck tag for less money than they charge for N/R.
