    From everything you know and have read, if you were totally free to move your residence anywhere in the nation where would you move? Best hunting and fishing, species, game laws, seasons,access, your dream location? If you are already there , what do you consider your areas greatest attributes?

      Well, I left California and moved to east Texas, so I know I moved to the better.

      1- I like the freedom of firearms that this state has from including your vehicle in the castle law to the possibility of purchasing AR/AK type rifles which are handy on pigs and coyotes.

      2- For me, I have in-laws and friends that have land to hunt on. Since the vast majority of Texas land is privately owned, hunting land will be much tougher to find and expensive if you have to find leases to hunt on as opposed to the few public hunting areas.

      3- Pigs and coyotes are in abundance, so year-round hunting with spotlights is both legal and fun. If you're lucky enough to hunt with a suppressor and/or night vision, I recommend it (legally).

      4- Deer can be tough to find at times due to the high density of brush and abundance of food sources, but there are a lot out there, and take some patience.

      5- In my area, you can also duck hunt and dove hunt, which opens up more variability.

      6- I'm going to get into bowfishing, so I consider that more hunting even though you need a fishing license to do it. A friend of mine shot a 7 foot alligator gar, so its a thrill.

        I'd move to wyoming or colorado. Plenty of game and opportunity and public lands. Probably throw montana into the mix. Alaska is certainly intriguing, just not sure I would want to put up with the winters when you can't hunt or fish and have little daylight.

          I think you all should move to Pennsylvania to thin out the deer off the Interstates.

              Virginia is it for me, there is something to do year round outdoor related, saltwater or fresh, swamp or mountain, great heritage, great conservation. Can't beat it.

                I'll stay in Ohio. If I were to move to my dream location then I would'nt have a place to vacation (hunt & Fish)! It would become just another place to go to work and worry.

                    #1 choice is Montana for all of the nothingness! I would like to be in the middle of nowhere and they have tons of game from what I hear.

                        I love it here in NC we have everything from mountain trout streams to some of the best offshore fishing in the world. But if I could move Louisiana would be high on the list, fishing the delta anytime I wanted would be amazing... Also Florida to fish the flats any day would make me a very absent man. But as far as all out fishing and hunting, I think Alaska may take the cake.

                          im getting ready to graduate next spring, so this is something thats in the back of my mind. i spend a lot of time in western PA, there are jobs in my field, and i love the country. i could live out west comfortably, a little change of pace from whitetails to other big game (colorado, montana, ect.). im from the midwest so i have no issue living anywhere here in the flatlands. idk, i feel like id be comfortable anywhere but california, new york, or the deep south (to hot in the south, im a michigander, i welcome the cold). but then there is that part of me that just wants to hang around i grew up.

                              I was in Montana a couple years ago and always wanted to go back. Can't say if I would want to live there, but I definitely would go for a couple months and check it out.

                                I do feel sorry for those rookie cops on the scene who had their backs to the brutality being committed by their senior officer.
