Like lovedasnow says, go East!!! In the area between the Cascade summit and Yakima up to Wenatchee you can look around. There are a lot of places on White Pass and Chinook Pass where you can find country that will let you shoot long distance. Where I shot my deer last year was off of Chinook Pass and in the general area where I got him, I could shoot out to 1500 yards. I'd tell you the exact spot, but then I'd have to shoot you!!!

If you don't already have it, get Google Earth,(Get it here
) , a free download and you can look over the whole state and pick each area apart.
In the Eastern part of the state between Ellensburg and Wenatchee you can hunt some open country for miles all the way to the Columbia River. That's where I got my elk last year and there are spots in there where even with a 1500 yard elk gun you'd have to get closer. You can spot animals 2 or 3 miles off.
East of Yakima, South of Spokane and north of Walla Walla there is a lot of open farm land that you can hunt if you can get permission. Not many trees but a lot of open country mulies.
Hope this helps a little. Good luck and welcome to the state. If you're not used to a lot of people, which you'll run into on the West side, you'll probably be glad to spend some time in the Eastern part of the state.
