Ohio used to have good rabbit and deer hunting. Our division of wildlife has done a miserable job of managing the deer herd--- too many years of 9 deer limits and allowing pen raised deer that is starting cwd has really taken its toll around my farm. Very little efforts at habitat along w coyotes, hawks and owls unchecked and now it is rare for me to see a rabbit. Forget about quail and pheasant. They seem to be focusing efforts on getting the rattlesnake population established so at least someday we may have some limb skins.

I'm sorry my US brothers, clearly I'm bias, but I would have to argue for British Columbia ,Canada.
This is why, I can hunt Whit-Tailed deer, Mule Deer, Black tailed Deer, black bear, cougar, Moose, Caribou, Elk, Mt. Goat, Stone Sheep, Rocky Mt. Big Horn Sheep, Wolf, Lynx, Coyote, and more , all with-in a general open season. Yes there are Limited Entry Hunting seasons for many of these as well, but I can hunt them all with an over the counter tag. I've been lucky enough to take many of these with the longbow, including
3 Mt.Goat, Stone Sheep, Moose, bear, each species of dear, Hog, and more. and not one of those trips cost me more then a couple hundred bucks which was for the most part truck and boat fuel.

Don't count Texas unless you own land, or are friends with someone who owns land.

The hunting here is great, but first you gotta have a place to hunt....

Texas is 99% privately owned, so......

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.

Yes Hogs year-round and don't forget black bears

In ten years I'll be ready to retire by all accounts. No way I'm staying on Long Island with the way things are going and prices increasing. I'll miss much Archery club, Suffolk archers and my friends. Hunting on LI is ok with some nice bucks but the crowds and the slob hunters are both bad.

I would like to live on the trophy mountain at Cabelas. Every day I could shoot world class critters and not freeze my butt off. [archer2]

Right on! Bow season runs from September til February and hogs are available year round on private land...

TDHunter makes a strong argument for somebody still young enough to handle the terrain. What makes me still claim GA as best, is that I still can handle the terrain necessary to go after what we have. Oh, to be young and healthy again...

Colorado. For hunting or just archery? Wouldn't be a really good choice for either.. Small game, forget about it unless you know somebody close to your home. Public ground is completely over run. Big game not so much either. VERY crowded and if you live on the front range have to travel a long ways. One good trad shop in the state that I know of. We have been spoiled in the past but its getting ridicules these days. Way too many people, way too liberal. Every since parks and rec took over the game and fish its been a real cluster. Sorry to be so negative but to see what has happened to this state the last several years is just sad. .
