Sounds kinda crazy when I say it, but CA has quite a few zones just south of you about 300 miles, where you can harvest 2 deer. You can buy A,B., and just about all D zones otc. Premium tags(x zones) apps are due by 6/2, 5pm. OTC tags can be purchased at any sporting store in the state, not bad.
Primarily blacktails on the western slope and muleys on the eastern slope, which are a pp draw. Some nice backtails in the b zones, all otc. Long seasons, liberal limits. Not many look at CA for hunting, but let me tell you, its worth a look.
