Well, if you dont mind Orange, and have never been ''out west'', then the sky is the limmit. Montana, Colorado,Wyoming, Idaho, Utah, Arizona all have some gynormous bucks, and beautifull scenery. Take your pick. Your guaranteed to have the time of your life!
I think Long Time Long Ranger guides in Montana. I was reading a story on a 32'' buck or something early this spring. Do a search, and youll find the thread. Those boys shoot BIG deer!! Maybe that'll help you decide wich state/unit to apply for. I know you mentioned DIY, but If you dont draw for some reason, most guides are alotted a certain number of tags. If you book a hunt with them you dont have to draw. But, you also have to get led around by the teeth by a stranger, and have someone tell you when, and where, and what to shoot, etc. They have to hunt with all comer's. Guides want to make it home alive, and dont want to waste 3 days following a wounded animal that some iddiot gut shot, so you cant blame them for doing things the way they do. Its just not my style, I want an adventure, and I want to call my own shots. But the right guide can make all the difference, and you dont have to draw a tag. 6 of one -half dozen of the other......Both have thier +&-
