Whats your idea of the best state for outdoor life? Lots of hiking potential, nice fishing and good hunting?

The reason I post is that I came from a great place offering all of the above (hawaii) to a terrible place, offering almost none of the above (south florida), and am looking at different places to go hunting and fishing for vacation. Ideally a remote spot.

Utah!!! We've got mountains, deserts, canyons, snow, rivers, trails, tons of BLM land open to shooting and 4WD! We've got rock climbing, hunting, etc etc etc. It's an outdoor enthusiast's heaven!

Well, when the ice leaves the lakes in July, Minnesota has great fishing! Nah, just kidding. The ice usually leaves about mid-April. Some great fishing in the "Land of 10,000 lakes" and some great Whitetail hunting as well. I am going out this weekend for the MN fishing opener. Walleyes and Northern Pike are on the menu!

Have to say that my many years spent in Iowa were enjoyable. Pheasant, quail, white tail, cotton tail, coyote, turkey.....however, the winter of 2000 nearly destroyed the pheasant and quail population.

If the rules for turkey hunting were the same as they are for quail (8/day 16/possession), I could have easily shot my limit several days in a row last year.

Once the hunting is over, you can start on the bass, catfish, crappie, sun fish, walleye, northern, etc.

Of course, my sister and bro-in-law moved to Flagstaff a couple of years ago and keep telling me how great the outdoor life is out there. Of course they are bummed that they won't be able to do any camping this summer because some of the parks will be closed due to the extreme danger of forest fires.

Oh well, can't have everything.

Don't know yet. I've only been a PA resident for 45 days....

However, my in-laws on the other side of the state do have deer & turkey. Supposedly they have quail too, but I have yet to actually see one on their property.

Only thing to hunt in my area are what they refer to in Florida are "youngins", and I have yet to figure out how they get them in their game pouches.;e

While a long way from S Florida, the Yellowstone/Teton area (Idaho, Montana, Wyoming) is a great place to pursue the vacation activities you expressed an interest in. Even though it can be a tourist trap, there are many remote areas to play in. :)

Hey Big C,

What the best way to start hunting in Texas. I live close to you but this will be the first year I'm able to hunt. Where do you go and what do you like to hunt ?

Utah, Idaho, Wyoming. I'm not a hunter but I love to fish and camp. Living in the Salt Lake City area it's about 45 minutes to a half-dozen different canyons all with small rivers and lakes. Idaho has some scenery and fishing that is simply awesome. The same with Wyoming. Those would be my three choices.

I'm not a hunter (never got around to it yet) but Texas has pigs, deer, turkeys, all the flying gamebirds, fishing everywhere, coyotes, if you're on the coast, saltwater stuff and even crocodiles I think are legal.... plus lots of land to ride and hike on.

Last time I was hunting I was a kid.

This year I purchased a hunting license, along with the fishing license.

I'm planning on Elk hunting this year. I always do lots of camping, and plan to do so this year.

Oregon is the place man!!! We have it all.
