Rifle hunt?

I would like to plan a speed goat hunt out west for a rifle hunt. Can anyone tell me what states have over the counter tags or do i need to do the lottery?

You have to apply. Good news is Wyoming always have some left over tags come July and you can still get a tag this year. They will be in units with lots of private land, so you may have to pay a trespass fee or really study your maps and try to find some public land to hunt. Usually there are small parcels of public in most units that a guy can hunt if he is careful. Trespass fees are usually very reasonable in alot of areas, especially if you go after the first week of season.

You can still apply for Montana for the next day or so, June 2 is the deadline. Apply for unit 700-00 and you can hunt the eastern side of the state and should be a sure draw, usually 100%. Lots of public and block managment land to hunt. Unit 620-00 is another option and you should draw it as well.

Those are the best chances for this year. I have other info on other states if you are interested.

Not that I'm trying to keep you out of Montana, but Wyoming has bigger bucks on average than Montana. But Montana might offer better access through public lands and block management.

Here's Montana's Fish Wildlife and Parks site

Licenses and Permits - Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks

If you get an application post marked today, you're good. You want to apply for 700-00.
