Congrats for all your honesty!

Man all you guys are honest. Nice job! When I find a new or old fishin hole or huntin spot that is still great, I don't tell anyone where it is and even directing people in the wrong direction is not out of the question. I live in Idaho and love it so have never made it a point to brag about it. The last thing I want is to have one more person casting over my line or walkin up the same ridge as me on opening day. You all see the bumper stickers that say "Dont Californicate Idaho". I have always believed that. Now I'm going to AK so someone can take my place, I guess. But I have hunted in nearly every state that borders Idaho and Idaho is still my favorite. Break it down. If you want big elk throw a dart at a map of the west and you will hit a state that is producing big bulls. But states like Idaho, Mont. and Wyoming have lots of general hunts with some big bulls to boot. If you want a big muley, Colorado owns the record book but the last few years has been Wyoming and Utah it seems. You cant beat Wyoming for the number of antelope and any drive through that state will prove it. Like I said, I love Idaho cuz I live here and know it, its comfortable. If I had to start over and pick a state on Quality hunting and fishing in the lower 48, Wyoming. Big bucks, Big Bulls, Big antelope, Tons of sheep permits but hard to get like every where, Great fishing. The mormons arent that bad either.

Relocation advice needed

I grew up in Idaho and have lived either in or within a few miles of it for most my life. While part of me(us) really wants to bust out and move to new territory ... almost daily my wife and I look at each other and say ... "Ya know, living here in [blank intended] is really not that bad."

(I say it for the immediate proximity of outdoors and wildlife; she says it for other reasons).

So, some day we'll move - maybe soon, maybe not so soon - ... maybe near, maybe far, real far ... but in the mean time, I'll continue to ENJOY.

Relocation advice needed

I've lived in Colorado for most of my life. Have traveled some and from time to time think I want to move, but when I really look at other locations, I'm not sure they can offer more than what I have right in my back yard.

Often times we take for granted what we have around us. I know I do. I no longer think much about seeing lots of wildlife every day; elk, mule deer, antelope and a large variety of birds & small critters. It isn't until I'm away from it for a while, that I realize how lucky I am.

I think we all fall into the "grass is greener on the other side" syndrome from time to time.

So true. I have spent too much of my life envying what other people are or have.
