Mule deer on the great plains?

I am from Washington state. WA is a great mule deer state. I hunt them in the Columbia basin in knee high sagebrush/ basalt rock deserts to the 9,000 foot cascades and everywhere in between.
I have been wanting to hunt them on the great plainsfor a while. I was thinking Kansas, Nebraska or SD. Anybody want to give me some leads? I'm looking for arias with good public access and a non-resident rifle season.
Would like info on hunting muleys in the desert SW too. I want to hunt in the South desert (yes... I know the N.AZ units are better)
I'll trade info on Washington for equaly good info from you.
Thanks for the help guys

Of those states I think Nebraska has the easiest non-resident deer tag availability.

Re: Mule deer on the great plains?

From what I've seen, if you are looking for a wall-hanger buck in SD then you will be hunting private ground. Good luck finding a ranch to hunt, unless you can pay a couple grand per gun. Don't get me wrong, there are a few nice bucks killed on public ground out here but they are few and far between.
