Arkansas has some great fishing /hunting all thru the state. Your close to hogs in any direction., hunted all year round. Usually we have mild winters, south of the state hardly any.

Is it true your allowed to drink and drive in texas? responsibly of course.
Our laws are not strict.

18 to buy a long gun
21 for pistol (18 through private sale)
NO permits required
NO gun registration
NO assault weapon bans or high capacity magazine bans
Shall issue for concealed carry licenses
Castle Doctrine
NO waiting period
Loaded handguns can be within reach in your car, but must be concealed.
Loaded long guns can be within reach in your car, and doesn't have to be concealed
No open carry though.

Yes, you can hunt on your own land if you get the proper tags. Some animals don't require tags though.

Yes, we do have tornadoes. They are more prevalent in certain parts of the state than others. Yes some can tear your house apart, but most are small and will only do some damage if they even get close to your home. I wouldn't let them stop you from moving here. This is a great state.

Finally, big storms happen from time to time depending on where you are in the state. The coast will see hurricanes, but the rest of the state just has regular thunderstorms/rain storms.

I think Kentucky is a nice state. Lush and green, mild winters, cheap(er) real estate.

My second choice would be Wyoming or Arizona.

That's my suggestion as well, but it is very hot in the summer.

The flip side to that is we don't have brutal winters.

-lowest crime
-Cheapest land
-best fishing
-low taxes
-lowest real estate
-gun friendly
Mainly he wants to move to a small town or have a house 20+ miles from the nearest store/town and 60+ acres.
My dad is finally getting tired of ****cago and either wants to move to the southern belt or Arizona/Colorado area.
So far im thinking, Fort wayne, IN, Denver, CO, Plano/Garland, TX, Scottsdale/Prescott/page,AZ

Where do you guys think we should move?
Northern AZ might be the best fit to your criteria. As nice as Scottsdale is it is also one of the most expensive places to live in AZ. Have you given any thought on Flagstaff AZ (or surrounding areas) - they do have a winter but it is nothing like what you are used to now. I've skied in shorts and a t-shirt in the middle of January there

I hear Alaska has mild summers & a pretty quiet tornado & hurricane seasons. Lots of land so I'm sure it's probably cheap & they have all kinds of wild life. Not sure on the gun laws.
