    Are you just looking for a place to hunt? Retire? Relocate? Need a little more information.

    Need more info. What exactly are you looking for? Mountain cabin? Home on the prairie? What species are you after? Budget? Wanting to hunt your own land? Farm the land? Run cattle?

    I agree if you want to hunt every year choose a state that sells OTC tags.

    Wyoming is the easy answer to me... You can still find reasonably priced land and you can buy OTC tags every year.

    I'd focus on what tags are available for residents versus NR's. Colorado has lots of OTC tags but also has a large population so getting good tags is difficult. Not to mention many of their tags are given to landowners so there are fewer and fewer tags available in the draw, unless you plan to buy enough land to get landowner tags. For example it will probably take 10+ years to get a good antelope tag in Colorado and in Wyoming you can get a similar tag every year as a resident.

    Look for states with good animals and smaller populations of resident hunters. States like WY, MT, and NM fit the bill.

    That sounds pretty dang good... Probably the only way a guy ever gets a unit 100 elk tag.
