bigbuck57 - I would suggest Missouri for a non-resident tag. Several areas of the state produce quality bucks, there rifle season generally coincides with the rut, the initial tag cost is very reasonable compared to Iowa/Illinois. Non-residents can buy over the counter; your tag is all that is required no hunting license needed. You can also buy doe tags for around $25 I think. It’s been a couple years since I hunted there.

I believe rifle season runs 10 to 12 days, if you do not fill your rifle season tag it is good for the alternative season which is muzzleloader, etc…

Now I think they experienced EHD pretty hard as well. According to an article on grand view outdoors, their rifle season numbers were down 47,000 deer this year after one of the highest kill years last year.
