Idaho has OTC deer tags. Montana didn't used to, but they have had leftovers the past two years. Nebraska is first come first served with a cap that doesn't usually sell out until a few days before the season starts. Texas licenses include a mule deer or two, but of course there's the access issues.

thanks in advance


If you want a shot at a trophy buck, you're almost assuredly going to have to apply for premium areas. I'd suggest that you consider acquiring bonus points for trophy areas in western states.

shouldnt be too hard, you see 10 year old girls on these kinds of forums often with big kills

unless those are corn pile kills with sand bags and daddy pulling the trigger


you wouldnt know what to think DA, different when the animal is 3ft taller than the surrounding vegetation for 5 miles. Just wave your hat at them,
they'll stop, look and pose the 7saum laugh


aint like hunting whitetails in hardwood/briars running 400mph (away from the hunter)

grin grin

I would NOT lie but would NOT suggest 'where' I hunt.

I'd suggest some 'other' area with good population 'not close' to mine. smile

if it has to be a buck, then do your research, one can be had almost anywhere, just have to put some effort into it.

To get an 8 pt on public land here I'd suggest LBL or TN Wildlife Refuge around Britton Ford

i never asked for specific units or locations my question was about states and the availability of tags, any other info is always appreciated it is not like I will be up there all the time at the rate now once every 10 years. Truth be told we may just hook up with the land owner in NM outside of clayton and go there again but i really like to try something new like Mule Deer

From what I have seen from New Mexico in 2005 antelope hunting the west is pretty wide freaking open
