Missouri,Kansas, Tennessee. Those saying Indiana are off their rockers. That state is horrible to live in. Jobs aren't there,specially cabinet making or any specialty craft. Just became the number 1 murder state. Thanks to Gary and downtown Indianapolis. Both my wife and I born and raised in Indiana.
And those saying Indiana isn't cold long. Never lived there. It's mid 20s maybe 35 from November to as late as April. Hell,we lived there when it was 32 and snowing during the Indy 500 race.
We moved to Tennessee last year. Couldn't be happier. Weather is nice in summer,and winter in cold. No snow though. Economy where We are at is rock solid. Nissan,nestle,gm just to name a few. O,and one of the best school systems in the nation. Public not private. Turkey's are a plenty and good bucks to be had,but you've got to put in leg work. Eastern Tennessee is allowing elk hunting now.
Number 1 thing about Tennessee! You can shoot a bow anywhere. No laws against them. Shoot in your yard all you want. Very friendly hunting state too. And no income tax and taxes are very reserved in general here.Just my 2 cents though.
