Idaho is great for OTC archery and you always have a shot at drawing a good unit with your rifle since it's a random draw. Plus on the OTC stuff you can always buy another tag. So you can go to Idaho hunt good bulls over the counter, get a second tag after you down the first one ... Oh and did I mention the opportunity to hunt wolves to.

I build points for Elk in Utah, Arizona, Nevada, California (Tule) and Wyoming. Plus applying in New Mexico (Unit 37 rifle tag for this fall). I have/had been leaving Montana alone since there had been leftover general tags up until this year... I am building points for deer in CO.

I have always figured that if I hunt Colorado or Idaho (insert Washington or Oregon as well) it will be on a OTC tag because I either didn't draw or am between drawing elsewhere. Probably going to plan an Idaho, or Roosevelt (WA or OR), trip for 2018.
