how are any of those except In. a sleeper state? In. isn't really a sleeper state either. West of the Rockies would be the only option for "sleeper state" only because there isn't that many "White Tails". East of the Rockies doesn't have a sleeper state for W.D.

I am with you NebBuckHunter there are no deer here in Oklahoma either. I think they all went to Kansas.

Ohio?...I wouldn't call that a sleeper. Always here about big bucks coming out of there. I would agree with the posts about Nebraska. It is a big agriculture state that you don't here that much about but, it seems some really nice bucks and healthy herds are found there.

True definition of a sleeper is one that isn't on many people's radar. 24 posts and I don't think anyone has mentioned Minnesota.

btw who cares? it's hard enough shooting a big boy in a "trophy" state let alone in a sleeper.

Where is MO? Low price out of state tags, good conservation ground, tons of private ground. North Mo has huge deer numbers, mix of woods plus crops.
