If you could chose anywhere to live in terms of archery ranges and availability, including cheap public ranges, 3D courses, hunting, and other trad archers, where would it be?

I don't know about all of that but Arkansas is pretty nice for a sportsman. We have a very strong population of sportsmen and lots of public lands, some of which are bow only and a pretty respectable variety of game animals.

I live in SW PA close to MD line.

We have decent numbers of deer, bear, turkey, small game, and bow fishing. Close enough to MD, OH and WV to make hunting out of state doable.

I have enough traditional shooting friends nearby to easily get a few together with just a phone call. I'm an hour from Strictly Sticks, 3 hrs from Baltimore shoot, 4 hrs from ETAR, 2.5 hrs to the OH shoot, Pine Hill is 3 hrs, other smaller shoots and events within a reasonable drive. Our annual trad archery golf shoot is coming up soon, it's less than an hour away.

I'm fortunate to be right in the middle of all these opportunities.

I do have a bunch of Trad friends here in N.Y. but hunting is not that great in my opinion.....at least in my part of the state. Planning on moving to Georgia in the next year or so and I'm looking forward to spending time in a different piece of woods. Seems to be some stuff going on down that way with shoots and such.

Michigan. Incredible amount of public land. Some of it is so remote in the U.P. that you don't see another person for weeks.

So I’ve been in the Army for the past 28 years, stationed all over the world and the States. The best place I have been stationed for traditional archery is Georgia. Good whitetail and turkey hunting. Hogs galore. And the terrain suits a Trad bow.

And 3D shoots from about February until September, some local, some major, but all within driving distance. Several Trad guys at the shoots.

Just my take.

For hunting opportunities I think GA is tough to beat. Most of the locals in western NC go there to hunt deer. You have lots of hogs and small game opportunity to extend your season. Winter is mild. Bears and turkeys too. Decent sized public lands. Not sure how crowded they are but I intend to find out soon.

Its not an eastern state. Thats for sure. Ever read any don thomas books? In one season in montana, he could hunt elk, muleys, whitetails, moose, black bear, pronghorn, and lions. Then add in all the different upland game they have plus all the waterfowl and turkeys. Not sure why I live in Ga

I would think that Idaho would be a really good place to be. A big variety of game and some awesome scenery and good amounts of public ground. I've been there once and would love to go back.

I like Georgia pretty well. We don't have elk, moose, or caribou, but I can't afford to hunt them anyway. Whitetails make up the bulk of my hunting efforts, and we have plenty of them. Hogs are plentiful, too.
