Re: hypothetical which state to live in the USA

I surprised no one mentioned the south, we have a good population of split tails here. I've been hunting in NM and WY they seem to be lacking in this area or maybe I was just hunting in the wrong place!!!

Re: hypothetical which state to live in the USA

My vote is for New Mexico.(wonder why?)

Northern part is beautiful mountains and the southern part is desert with some mountains.

In state hunting license fees are reasonable.
Many species of game to hunt.
The state has gone to a draw permit on all big game, no more over the counter licenses. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
No chucks, but plenty of prairie dogs.
Stay out of the Albuquerque/Santa Fe area and there arent many people.
A couple of 1000 yd ranges in the state.

I would move to Cimarron, NM.
Its a small town with a lot going for it.

Close to the excelent NRA Whittington Center which hosts many shootnig events from 25yd rimfire to 1000yd blackpowder.
In the edge of great elk country.
In the edge of great muley country.
In the edge of great pronghorn country.
Prarie dogs around.
Coyote calling around.

Now its just too bad my company doesn't have an office there, I would be trying to transfer.

Hi Pop,
You and I have actually had an E-Mail exchange or two over the years. I think we first "met" on The Reloading Bench the better part of 10 years ago. I live in Hanna... 40 miles your side of Rawlins and work at the Pen in Rawlins.

Mike, You made me laugh outloud and almost spewed my coffee on the keyboard. I've always said the wind in Wyoming will blow a barbed wire fence over!

BTW: My vote is Southern Colorado.
