I really appreciate the insight. I know no one wants another person hunting their spots.
    No, MT does not have the restrictions. You have to live in Wyoming for a full Calendar year before you can become a resident.

    If you want to hunt every year I would not recomend NV. We have great huntiing but it's drawing the tags that is the hard part even
    for us residents.
    When you do draw a tag the hunting can be great.

    Yeah I wouldn't even apply for Nevada. Horrible draw odds and I haven't seen a decent buck once in the state!😜

    Why do you think Montana as a resident over Wyoming?

    Montana overpriced their hunting opportunities and has had lots of leftovers available every year since. Basically they told NR hunters to find other options when they raised prices. You wont' find a leftover general elk tag in Wyoming for good reason but you can go buy a leftover Montana elk or big game combo tag right now. Montana is basically an OTC state at this point for general elk and deer tags.

    WYOMING!!!! Having lived in Wyo. for 25 years I can vouch for the great opportunities it presents to the outdoorsman. Since returning back to my native Michigan and experiencing life east of the Mississippi I can certainly reflect on all the greatness of Wyoming. As far as the Wilderness Law concerning Non residents needing a guide to hunt in the Wilderness. What a farce. Just a law made by the strong lobby of the hunting outfitters in the state to protect their businesses. For 25 years I could roam the Wilderness of Wyoming with a hunting Lic. as I pleased. Now after moving from the state and designated a non-resident I'm no longer competent to do so (?)(!). Spent lot's of time in wilderness on DIY hunts including a successful DIY sheep hunt. SOOOO, now I'm less able to take care of myself in that same wilderness than a person who just established residency after 1 year and has maybe never stepped inside a wilderness boundary . Go figure, just doesn't make sense. Furthermore they are discriminating against the hunting non resident with this Guide law just because he is packing a valid hunting license. This is the ONLY time a non resident is required to have a guide. If a non resident wants to fish, take photos, backpack, whatever, they can do so on their own and are exempt from the Wilderness Guide Law. Another example of we hunters being picked on for no legitimate reason (On federal Public Land that we non resident hunters pay taxes on!) just so an elite group of individuals (Guides and Outfitters) can require us to use their services for their profit. Not right!!!!

    I live in Colorado and would recommend Wyoming or Idaho. Colorado's cost of living is sky rocketing as well as the population and liberal regulation. I can't wait to transfer out of here to on e of the less crowded western states. If you do pick Colorado try the western slope, less people. Stay away from the front range!

    Down here in SW Colorado we consider the "Front Range" to be another state.......too bad it isn't!! If I had it to do over, Wyoming would be it for me.....

    Wyoming hands down. Ya the "record book" shows lots of record muley bucks killed in Colorado but check the kill dates.....years ago! Deer hunting in Colorado has taken a big hit here and populations are way down. Of course, you'll feel like your hunting back east what with all the hunters that swarm to Colorado. Seasons are also short....some just a matter of a few days long. Years ago Colorado was a really great place to hunt and live. Anymore, with the liberal left running the state house AND the CPW, and the massive population growth along the front range, it's not much fun living here anymore.

    If there are fewer nonresident hunters in Montana, why wouldn't Montana be a better choice then Wyoming? What is it about Wyoming that is better than Montana? Also if anyone would have leads on specific areas in Wyoming that are better than others u would really appreciate it. I have looked into Cody and Sheridan so far. But I really don't know the areas well. Im contacting Wyoming fish and game about getting previous years successes and areas of public ground. Also investing in onx maps next month as well for the regions. Any other help or insight would really be appreciated. Thanks again.
