If you had a chance to move to any state in the lower 48. What state would you live in? Taking into account activities (hunting....whatever else)... Climate... Land availablity..... Amount of public land.... realestate costs... cost of living... jobs.... etc.

Something I have been contemplating lately, wondering what others thought?

Despite its limitations

Id Stay here in Mass. The central and west of the state are beautiful, and great for outdoor activities. The ocean is 1hr away, the mountains are close. It is a nice place. Taxes are high, real estate is ridiculous, moderate amount of public land... but I love this place so sticking here would be great.

I can always visit other places :)

I am honestly thinking of bradford county, PA.........super low land costs, low taxes, income potential about the same as any other rural areas I have lived in as well. There is some pretty good bucks there too..........

Northwest NE, or the Texas Panhandle.
Hey, if you move to the TX Panhandle and we'll be neighbors. :)

I've wondered where I'd want to move for bigger deer, but I don't think I'd ever want to leave Texas. There may not be a high number of world-class-sized Whitetails, but there's a variety of game that you can't find just anywhere. People travel from all over the USA to quail hunt in this area of Texas. Plus the dove hunting is great. We've got turkeys, hogs, and the occasional Mulie herd. If you don't mind Summer from March-October, Texas is the place to live. :wink:

God bless Texas. :darkbeer:
