I like the Hwy 4 corridor through the Sierra.

I also like Cherry Lake just west of Yosemite.

What about you?
I hunt my own land and some other private lands around here. Lots of game to be had as there are not lots of hunters around here and there is a lot of public park land that cannot be hunted. I also hunt a large cattle ranch in Tres Pinos (pigs). Never hunted the Sierra.

I currently live in Florence Montana, bout 15 miles south of Missoula. I wasn't too much of a fan when I first moved here, however now that my time here is drawing to an end I am starting to think I'll miss it. The people are very friendly and the gun laws aren't too shabby either.

In the end though my heart will always lie in Colorado. Though I'd like to live a little more off the grid then where I do right now, nothing beats 300 days of sunshine, the hiking, rafting, and numerous other activities you can do there. Gun laws aren't bad at all. I can't wait to go back. We do have a lot of Cali transplants but most of them seem to be alright. Though we do have a bone to pick with all the Texans coming and filling up our ski slopes in the winter

Here in Oklahoma, we handle our Texas "bone pickin'" on the FOOTBALL field.

It's over-the-counter walk-on with archery. So you just need to learn to shoot a compound bow.

Just quoting.

Chandler no wonder you and I disagree about just about everything.

Now I get why.
I think it just has more to do with the fact you are an @$$...

FWIW, Me & the family are transplants. In the more populous areas there has been enough influx of "outsiders" to kind of temper some of the overt stuff. Mormons tend to be cordial/polite to us outsiders at the very least. They are typically good neighbors. Quiet & polite, and as a non mormon, they tend to not get into your business. Being up here around the base, it's more of a melting pot than some areas.
I got stationed at Hill AFB back in 03. Retired here in 06. Utah has a lot going for it. Fishing, hunting, skiing, etc. I'm more "indoorsy," though I'll be ready to break out the Triumph when the weather warms up.

Tell ya what, it gets really cold around Scipio, especially with no fairing or windshield.

I hope your not moving to Scipio. It's not quite the middle of nowhere, but you can see it from there
Cold, was riding up to Cedar Breaks on July 4th with a mesh jacket.
