Me and some friends got talking about the powerball as it is over 100 mil now everybody has a ticket around here.
If you had an near unlimited amount of cash and did not need to work any more where would you buy you dream hunting land and why? What would you look for when picking a start or area?
I have moved around alot and moving to another state has become second nature to me so it would be easy for me.
I would list all the states with trophy deer hunting,turkey duck, maybe some elk bear and mule deer. But the whitetail would be enough. Any none rifle state would be out as hell why move to a shotgun only state. The anti gun states would be out. Then i would look at what the properpty tax and income taxs where. I would say iowa one of the dakotas KY TN anywhere but indiana. Buy 2k acres and never leave. Plus i would not go any where that did not have nice tall straight trees for stands

I hunt "small-ish" deer in NC. But I don't know anyone I'd trade hunting grounds with. I walk (or short drive via truck or ATV) to all my spots.....and the liberal bag limits here afford me MANY opportunities.

I'd love to hunt some bigger game, elsewhere, and I have made plans to do that in the near future. But......I love hunting right here.

I would have to say the northern panhandle of Idaho would be where I would go. Beautiful country, lots of great hunting and fishing, the people are great. I absolutely love it out there!

Have to be on our ground in Pike County, IL. I am in love with the way the community is and the way the ground and whitetail herd is.. Nowhere else on earth as perfect for me as right there. I am fortunate to spend almost every weekend over there..

My wife and I are beginning talks of putting together a 10-year-plan to move out West... probably Colorado, but could be something else once I really start doing the research.

I really want to move somewhere where I can go after mule deer, elk, antelope, mountain lion and bears all in one state. If they've got whitetails too, all the better -- but I'm going to do my best to get another five P&Y whitetails on my walls before we're ready to leave so if I can't hunt them any more it won't be that big a deal for what I'll be getting in return.
