I hunt three different

I hunt three different farms.  The one is right out my front door, the other two are within 10-15 minute drives.  I'd like to make an out of state hunt one of these years, maybe Missouri or Indiana for a 10-12 day hunt.

Never to far!

Well I guess if a buck was big enough I would drive any where I could even just to have a chance!

I have always hunted right

I have always hunted right here in my home state of Ohio and I've never ventured more than 1/2 hour away from home. But depending on the circumstances I would drive further if presented the right opportunity.

Far

Since I'm trying to kill one in every state, I travel a fair amount for whitetails.  If visiting someone, I'll gladly drive to the remote corners of their state with public land to go hunting.

That's a cool goal Ex, have you killed one in WI yet?  If not I could put you on some really good public ground here in western Wisconsin.  There are a few whoppers shot every season off of these spots.  Just a thought
