If a non-resident is hunting under a Hunting Passport, can they purchase a resident big game tag?

The section discussing the Hunting Passport only has links to resident tags and permits, and no references indicating if a non-resident can purchase resident tags and permits.

Answer

No.  A nonresident who purchase a hunting passport for $1.75 must purchase a nonresident tag and any appropriate permits and/or validations.  All hunting rules, seasons and weapon restrictions also apply to the holder of a hunting passport.
