Default OTC and cool draw hunts.

Iíve been helping a young man thatís new to archery and hunting all together. HeĎs going on our OTC elk hunt this year. Which he had no idea you could just drive to Colorado, buy a tag, and hunt thousands of acres of land. He asked me ďwhat other things and states can you hunt OTC?Ē So I thought Iíd ask here. I know a bunch of other hunts Iíll never do, but I shared with him. I know there a bunch I donít know about though, so. I figured Iíd ask the all knowing GS.

What other hunts are out there for over the counter tags that people donít know about or maybe unique draw hunts that arenít well known?

A few I mentioned to him... Marylandís OTC Sambar Deer, Floridaís St. Vincent Sambar, New Mexicoís OTC Aoudad, Arizonaís OTC coues and mule deer, Arkansas OTC bear hunt.

What else is out there?

South Dakota has OTC Mule deer and whitetail tags for some pretty big expanses of public land. I think Wyoming has OTC elk hunts as well. May be wrong on that one

Wyoming is all a draw for non residents.
He should buy a PP this year, right now and apply for a general tag next year, he could archery and rifle hunt on that tag .
Lots of spots to hunt turkeys up north of you.

Nebraska may have some OTC deer permits, mulie and or whitetails.

Lots of states have OTC turkey & WT
Nebraska OTC deer tag was good for both WT & muleys when we did it
Montana has unlimited sheep units - tough hunting, huge areas, small quotas, and small populations of sheep, but you can get a tag and go

Idaho has OTC elk and deer. It is getting more crowded and prices are going up next year. The wolf population has changed elk hunting significantly.
