Good state for son's first out of state deer hunt

I'd like to take my son (and others, a small group) on their first out of state hunt for deer and possibly hogs, bobcats, or another game animal. I was thinking Tx but after figuring up travel costs, hunt costs, etc. I am back to the drawing board. I would appreciate any suggestions. I'd like my son to have the opportunity to take a nice buck (doesn't have to be a record) and possibly hunt other animals. I would like it to be within "reasonable driving distance, nothing over 18 hours). ANY suggestions would be appreciated.

if you're looking for #'s and a high chance at harvesting, I'd stick with the south. Around TN, Mississippi, or Bama......Very good #'s on deer, and the racks are getting bigger down there. Also, cost for the out of state licenses aren't too terribly bad down there.

One of my friends showed me some pictures of a couple big bucks he killed in Ohio. I have family in West Virginia, they get nice deer about every year. Good luck!

Try SW georgia, on the flint river. They are constantly producing record book animals and they also have good bobcat and cyote poulations. And even if you have restless bodies hunting with you, you can always count on thinning the squirrel polulation Big smile
