    Probably Michigan, we can hunt any game animal but doves and the animals out west(mule deer and antelope).

      Not my home state of Iowa, that's for sure. Lol
      I'm just guessing, but I would say one of the western states. Montana maybe?

        My first thought is Colorado. They've got all the big game and a lot of good water fowling and upland opportunities. However, a lot of it is a draw system.

          I just checked out your pictures and understand why you call yourself woodcockpro. Left you some comments there. Good job with that 410. That was my first shotgun too. Good hunting.

            I would have to say Texas. Given the wide variety of exotics that they raise for hunting on private ranches along with native game and varmints. Then you throw in waterfowl, two varieties of doves, and other game birds. JM, do you know the answer?

              I have no idea. I've been trying to find the correct answer without any luck. Your mention of private ranches kind of throws a wrench into the equation. I almost don't want to count that since states do not provide a tag/license to hunt for them.

                Yeah, I think it's safe to assume MO and IA are out of the question hah. Montana was my first guess, but I have a feeling it isn't the correct answer now.

                  Colorado isn't one that originally came to my mind. This question seems to be a bit harder to answer with complete confidence than I thought.

                    Perhaps Alaska?

                      There is a permit you need to have to hunt exotics on private ranches. But If you throw out the exotics I still wonder if Texas wouldn't still be the top few. Hard to say I guess.

                        I'm sure an ambitious person with plenty of time on their hands could find the exact answer just by reading the hunting regulations for every state, but I'm not that ambitious and I don't have that much time. Lol

                          I hadn't thought of TX, which could be if you count the exotics. So many hunters hate the fenced hunts, although in TX those fences run for miles. I've only hunted turkeys there on public land at the north end. In no hurt to go back even though we got our Rios. Virtually everything requires lease payments or trophy fees.

                            CO popped into my mind right away because of familiarity I've hunted there several times. Lots of high quality public land, OTC tags, has the largest elk population in the nation, antelope, whitetail and mule deer, cougar, in addition there's sheep, goats, bear, moose. All the upland birds, waterfowl, and dove. Don't think there's woodcock or ruffed grouse. All kinds of small game and predator available. I going there on a river turkey hunt this spring. Some things are a draw with preference points and I finally have enough points to draw that turkey tag.
                            The regs in most states are long and complex so I only read the ones where I plan to hunt, when I'm going to hunt. Interesting question JM.

                              Yeah but, IA has some pockets of fabulous pheasant hunting and it's close to WI.
                              Only hunted turkey in MO, shot my very first gobbler there about 35 years ago when there were none in my neck of the woods.
