Whitetail deer

I live in the state of Washington and we have huntable populations of mule deer, whitetail and blacktail. Over the years, the whitetail deer has just about covered this great country. So here's a trivia question.... Which state does NOT have whitetail deer?

all of 'em?

Hawaii has axis deer imports, I don't know about white tail.  Any in Alaska?  I gotta think they are just about everywhere else.

Qualified

Maybe I should have qualified my question. Which state in the lower mainland US does not have any huntable whitetail deer? I don't know about Hawaii or Alaska. But I do know of one mainland state that does not have whitetail. I believe all the rest do.

California.  There are none

California.  There are none here.  The coues deer sub-species does not reach this far west, and there is nothing encroaching from the north.

I do not believe Nevada has whitetails either.  There might be one tiny herd someplace near Lyon County, but that's the only reference to them that I can find when i google them.

Other than that, whitetails are spread over the rest of the mainland United States.

Oh, and until very recently,

Oh, and until very recently, Utah did not.  The first recorded whitetail taken there was in 2000.

I was racking my brain till I

I was racking my brain till I scrolled down and read your post. But for the record I never would have guessed California. Don't know why but I just assumed you had to have them somewhere.

Thanks for clearing it up before I posted the wrong answer.lol

Of course, upon further

Of course, upon further review, I'm remembering how good the hog hunting is in some parts of Ca. Seems I was a tad harsh originally. The heck with whitetails (and all that other stuff!) if you have those nice big hogs!!  Yes
