Re: I need to move!
You can pretty much rule out CO. We just elected the biggest panty waste of a Senator you could find. Denver drives all the statewide elections around here. The rest of the state (with the exception of the Aspen/Vail, and the wierdos in BOulder ) is pretty good. I love driving up north west. When you roll into Encampment, there are giant signs all over that say "Welcome Hunters", and they mean it.
I like WY, but that wind in Cheyenne/Casper will drive you insane. You'll need at least 50 MOA of windage if you plan to shoot there. Farther north in WY, near the SD border is very nice.
If you like your hunting rifle, you can keep your hunting rifle.
