On a farm here in southern Iowa,,Monroe or Lucas counties. Plenty of pheasants, quail, coyotes and not to mention the big deer here.

Don't get me wrong, I love it here but based on traditional gatherings,number of clubs and number of traditional archers it seems the areas around Michigan and Pennsylvania have the most to offer IMO.. the Midwest in general seems pretty active.
Lots of threads and response's from middle America

NY has a lot of opportunity to shoot and a great large group of trad Hunters/shooters.

If you ar etalking about Hunting Opportunity, I would look elsewhere.

I've been meeting guys here in WI. Theyve been great but it doesnt seem like there are quite as many shoots. There is better deer hunting though in general.

It's hard to say if you haven't really lived and hunted there. Southern Iowa has the big deer rep but few trad guys compared to where I lived in MN. When you have gatherings out east that draw thousands of shooters you really wonder.

I used to love in SW PA not far from Red Beastmaster. A year ago this week I moved to Springtown TX, which is kind of in the DFW area. I have a big open property with no close neighbors so in the aspect of target shooting, I like here better. I have plenty of room for a home range. Finding public places to hunt is much more difficult in TX than PA though so I do miss access to all the public land PA had to offer. I like I can hunt free range hogs here and I could not in PA.

Georgia hands down. Hunting you can be in the woods chasing deer, bear, hogs, turkey all in less than an hour drive from Atlanta.

I moved from North Ga right across the street from a WMA to Decatur. Surprisingly living in Atlanta I can be North, South, East, or West in less than an hour chasing critters. This is also good if you shoot 3D shoots.

If you have great shooting and hunting friends in Idaho, you are in the best place! The company you share the experience with will always beat the location!

I've spent 42 years in Michigan, 6 in California and the past in TX. I miss my Hunting buddies in Michigan, 3d and archery club buddies in California and enjoying making new ones in TX. Be careful what you wish for because in the end you may find out the greatest thing is those you shared the experience with.

I've resided in GA, CO, NY, FL, KY. My fav was Colorado, but all have their merits. To me, it just depends what you make of it.
