Wyoming, Idaho, Alaska. Hoping to maybe add Montana to that this year and also head back to AK.

Just two states for me (total 9 or so?). Idaho and Montana. Building up some WY points though (will see if I ever make it down there).

Oh, dang, I thought we were talking elk only. If it is all tags, I would have to change my vote to over 40. Lots of nonresident pheasant hunting licenses in the Dakotas and MT.

Dude get your butt down there! I remember a hunting/guiding buddy said to me one time “You’re a good elk hunter but you’re working too hard. If you hunt like that down here you’ll kill one every time” He was right and I have. You will too. I know your sinus issue has been making it hard to plan. Just go for it!
