    Colorado has great deer but too many resident hunters which when combined with the huge # of landowner tags suddenly makes it difficult to draw good tags on a regular basis.

    Wyoming is a good option and as a whole is probably the best all around hunting state for residents in the lower 48.

    Montana has lots of public land and a great season that runs through the rut.

    I'd probably look at New Mexico. Not a lot of residents to compete for tags and somewhat more mild winters not to mention some great hunting.

    I'd say Montana would be tough to beat. For residents, $85 will get you a conservation license, fishing license, upland game bird license and also a deer, elk and bear tag. Plus you get to hunt on something like 30 million acres of public land plus another 7-8 million acres of Block Management. For fishing they've also got plenty of streams and rivers if you want that or else a few lakes too.

    Wyoming I'd say would be 2nd.

    I want to move to WY, not only for the hunting but a pile of other reasons. No state income tax, low sales tax, great people, Yellowstone, residents do not need a guide in Wilderness areas, the general tag has tons of options, great fishing, everyone carries a gun, most democrats in WY are not like other democrats (they actually like babies, guns, and the constitution) and WY sits in the middle of a lot of great hunting states.

    I would personally look at more than just the hunting, especially if your income is decent...you dont want Uncle Sam and his cousins taking most of it to support a cause you do not agree with. I live in TN, no state income tax, so when we move it is going to be to another state with the same or better values.

    I would love to live in California, but a lot needs to change before I ever make that leap!

    Colorado hands down. Look at the record book. If you are a bow hunter opportunities are almost endless. Wyoming would be my second choice.

    In Colorado or New Mexico all you need is money . Just buy a landowner tag every year you don't draw.

    I'm hearing lots of good states for residents. If I didn't have nearly all my grandkids in NC, I'd be in CO, WY or MT in a heartbeat.

    How about the best state for nonresidents?
