Both Oregon, Washington and Idaho have over the counter non resident archery tags! You’d want to put in for the draw and start building points for some higher trophy class units, but there is a lot of opportunity in otc tags in all these states. Montana also I believe. I’m from Oregon, I know non resident with elk tag and license is around the 7-8 hundred mark for us. Lodging and food not included. But for like 1200 you’d have yourself a pretty good trip. Otc tags take more effort so I’d check into doing your homework on populations and success rates but if your not picky their is tons of opportunity and otc units with nice animals in them, here in Oregon. Best of luck on your journey man.
