    I apply for UT, NV, NM, WY, CO, and ID. Az and MT are the only other lower 48 states I've thought about applying for. Not sure I want to get into the AZ game since I already do similar type draw states like NV and UT...

    I noticed a trend. Everybody thinks Wyoming is a great state to hunt because everyone applies there. And everybody applies in Utah because it's cheap. Only problem is they won't draw unless it's general deer because everyone applies there lol.

Of all those states I apply for NV and ID and Im not sure ID would be worth it if it werent close to me and I have other uses for the hunting license (wolf tag and otc deer or elk is 1 of my back pocket hunts).
    When I began my application strategy, I looked at every state, with elk in mind first and foremost.
    New Mexico: because it's a completely random draw, and you get all your money back, less a few app fees.
    Idaho: again, random draw, and when I don't draw, I'll hunt OTC, so I'm not really out the license fee.
    Utah: costs about a quarter of the price of Nevada, when you factor in the $65 license, and the requirement to only buy it every other year. Many more available archery tags
    Arizona: better season dates, more available tags, and just the desire to ultimately hunt Arizona.

    For me, I'd prefer to hunt elk in the rut. I don't have much of a desire to hunt them in the late season, and since the vast majority of NV opportunity is all later hunts, I passed on it when building my app strategy.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.
