Colorado is a easy ticket with over the counter Bull elk as well as a generous left over tag list that is available in early Aug.
My trips from Louisiana (1200 miles ) typically cost me $1500 total and that is not splitting fuel cost of $250 each way . The Colorado division of wildlife can steer you in the right direction rougher the terrain the fewer the people but the better the physical condition required .
flexibility is one of the best assets you can have.
Also a over the counter license offers many GMU units to hunt with the same license should you need to abandon your chosen GMU for what ever the reason . The down side is you are pretty much limited to the 2nd and 3rd rifle season.
