Default Moving to Idaho

Hey guys, thinking of moving out there from NYC. Getting a little sick of the gun-bashing and liberal brainwashing campaigns here. I have land north of the city and its turning into somewhere I dont want to be. I need to be in a gun-loving, republican/conservative state and I dont like the desert heat or the humid south. I always wanted to be in the northwest in very dense forest, not on the plains. If anyone could give me a view on the culture/mindset of Idaho that would be great. All i want in life is a place in the middle of forest with my guns and dogs, without the govt babysitting me. Here in NY people view that as right-wing "extreme" and it makes me sick. Any advice or suggestions would be cool. Thanks

I had a good friend that moved to Idaho from Indiana many years ago. Even though Indiana is also a gun friendly state. Ken has now passed as of two years ago God Bless Him! Ken was an avid gun person and class III Dealer and loved Idaho! He lived up close to the primitive area outside a small town. He would always say it was a great place and being a grandfather himself, that the area he lived in in Idaho was a great place to raise children and a family. Good holsum, moral and relaxing Good Old American way of life like several years ago. If it were not for the winters in the North I would probably consider it also. I live in the South but do not like the humidity and heat either. But compared to some of NY I would say be on your way! Some of NY is beautiful also but it is the ass hats that live there in the cities and the corrupt politics and anti-gun sentiment that I could not tolerate for one minute. There are states that are still part of a Free America! Let the Liberal Socialist Politicians have their states I hope they go broke! From what I know you would probably like Idaho. It is certainly a lot slower pace like here in the Hills of Tennessee. I left the Metro Area in Indiana in 2003 and now No Boom Boxes, Sirens, People Shouting in the night and high crime rates like the city. Just good old America! Tree Frogs are the loudest thing in the night other than an Owl or coyote howling now and then.
Good Luck on your decision!

Idaho is probably more LDS (Mormon) than Utah is. To me that is a good thing.

Thats fine with me, as long as they dont try to tell me what I can eat like my mayor in NY lol literally. Ive done lots of research and Idaho makes the most sense i think. I looked at houses but I see lots of flat open land, id rather thick woods. Taking a trip soon to scope it out

If you are not LDS Island Park will be your worst Nite-Mare. Small towns in Idaho are primarily Mormon [LDS]. You can join the Mormon movement or be very isolated.
Idaho as stated is more Mormon than Utah. If you don't like coffee, tea, beer or tobacco and Sunday school seven days a week Idaho is for you.

I hear a lot of Kali pukes have migrated to Idaho after they screwed the pooch on the coast. They are working toward doing the same to the spud state. They have alos driven land prices up. If I could get my wife to accept snow, I would retire to Montana.

Default Yes. I agree.

When I first moved to Oregon 30 years ago car bumpers were loaded with "Don't Californicate Oregon" stickers. They did it anyway. They f'd up one of the most beautiful states in the union (Calif), and when even they couldn't stand it anymore they came to Oregon. Now that they've done the same thing here, they are branching out. I have been considering other states to live in and am disappointed that Idaho may not make the list. Texas is starting to go "that way" also.

The "state" that is appealing to me is the potential new state of North Colorado. A state for the last true pioneers.
