Not sure WHERE I would like to be but have a list of pretty good criteria. Maybe you guys could make suggestions...

1. Conservative political climate.
2. Good subsurface water.
3. Enough annual precip to ensure #2. and not have to water lawn and garden.
4. Close to good Muleys and Elk on BLM or National Forest
5. Close to good small stream trout.
6. < 95 degree summers.
7. I like some snow but not sure I want brutally cold winters.

Havent found a place that meets ALL the criteria. Suggestions?

North GA, but no Muley/Elk. Lots of deer and National Forests.

Much the same as my own list.

Stanley (Idaho) or many of the nearby smaller towns in the region might suit.

Median summer temps are below 80ºF. Median winter temps can get downto 0ºF Dec-Feb, but it's usually warmer; perhaps colder than you'd like for a couple months of the year. Sawtooth Hatchery's just a few miles down the valley (salmon and steelhead), and trout abound in regional streams. Mulies and Elk in the region. Well water possible, depending on the property. Hot springs nearby. Within driving distance of great snow skiing, along with lots of cross-country skiing around. Pretty conservative politics in the state. Not many people around, and much of the property can be fairly expensive. Nice area, if you enjoy being away from cities and the typical mess they bring.
