Of course it's New Hampshire!
Why? Because that's where I live and hunt.

I was being saracastic. I know there is a big difference in north/south Florida, our deer populations are closer to (if not higher than) Ala/Ga. A friend of mine rode around in the club last weekend and quit counting deer at 44. I also love the non-existent tagging system in Florida

I dont care if theres a wopper behind every tree, I just wanna have fun and fill the freezer, and mabye get a decent rack, w/ the weapon of my choice ,and plenty of time to do it.
Couldn't of said it better. One of the reasons why I appreciate Kentucky.

Texas ranks 5th for booney deer and 1 st for deer population. Tx deer population ( 4 million) doubles the #2 states. The Tx hill country has a 65% to 75% success rate.
On average 600,000 hunters here take 550,000 deer every year.

No doubt its Texas
plus our hog population is estimated at 2 million, nation wide is 4 million in 42 states.
