We've done it a couple times.
I drew an Elk tag I'd be wanting and my hunting partner drew a Buck tag he'd been wanting in the same state.
We filled the time in between with an OTC tag in a bordering state.  It worked out really well.  I'd call that lucky though.

We also did a 27 day "Tour" years ago (before wives and kids).  That was an absolute blast.  However, it was tight on time. 
All OTC tags except 1 draw tag he had for Deer.
We didn't give ourselves enough time to hit a hotel or anything.  We were in tents or the truck for over 3 weeks.
We were whooped when it was over.  The push to "get it done and get on the road" was always looming.
Meat care was also an issue.  We learned some tricks on that trip.

I've hunted Wyoming multiple times and have always stacked tags. However, my plan of choice is always to hold at least one good buck tag for antelope or deer and then pick up several antlerless tags. This allows me to get in some fun meat hunts that don't really cut very much into your time for your quality tag.  :twocents:

I have always avoided doing an out of state combo hunt.  I really only care about mule deer so the other tag would most likely go to waste for me unless I killed a muley early in the hunt.  But it can be done pretty easy for deer/antelope.  Without even really thinking about it with those dates I know what tags I would apply for to do a combo hunt.

I hunt both deer and elk during the OTC season in Idaho but Iím always thinking twice about shooting an elk. It just takes days away from deer hunting as i usually hunt by myself and we all know what itís like packing those guys out...I think it was mentioned but if you are after meat...stack tags. If you want to wait on a mature animal...donít.
