How many different states have you hunted.

Just out of curiosity I was wondering how many different states most guys have hunted or fished in?

I have gotten much busier the last few years with this as I get older.

I have hunted MIchigan, Wisconsin, Colorado,Wyoming, Texas, And Florida. I have fished in Utah and Canada in addition to that,

Just getting started

I have fished only in Colorado.  I have hunted in Colorado and Nebraska.  I would like to add to this pitiful list, but it is going to take some time.

Most of us did very little

Most of us did very little when we were younger. Although I hunted every year and killed a few does I did not get my first buck till I was 18 and that one was a spike.

And your'e ahead of me with Nebraska, I have planned for many years to go there but the plan always falls apart.

At least twelve I can think

At least twelve I can think of---Michigan, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, Texas, Kansas, and New Mexico.  I've also fished out on Lake Michigan out of an Illinois port, numerous trips to Ontario over the years and also did a bear hunt/fishing flyin trip up in Manitoba in 2009.

I have only hunted in 2

I have only hunted in 2 states, Oregon and Minnesota, I used to live in Minnesota and have hunted there a couple times, I have lived in oregon since 1986 and have hunted here since i was old enough to hunt. I just dont have a need to hunt other states right now when i have some of the best hunting in my back yard. may not have the "trophy" quality as some other states but we still have our bruisers here. And a tonof public land, about half of the state is open to the public. also the fishing is some of the best i have ever seen, i have fished in many other states.
