The "state" that is appealing to me is the potential new state of North Colorado. A state for the last true pioneers.
Miss P: same bumper stickers here in Az.

Thanks guys, lots of input here. I thought about Oregon/WA at first, then I seen a couple congressman make fools of themselves and ruined the aura for me. Im liking MT but i read theres alot of dem/libs their, same with CO. Someone got me looking into AZ, as long as its not in the barren desert. I need to get out of the northeast, and southern humidity would kill me, so would TX heat. This is my checklist:
#1: Republican/Consrv (at least 70%)
#2: Firearm freedom
#3: Mountain/Forest Land
#4: I no this is difficult, but the FUTURE of #1 and #2

I no the places that make this list are slowly disappearing but I have faith the tide will turn one day...after King-O has gone away. thanks again guys

I have been in Idaho a long time, send me a PM if you need details about middle and southern Idaho. Eastern has the Tetons, central has Sun Valley, and the west is Snake River. If you want to retire and just not deal with all that crap, this is it. You can be hidden and in an hours drive be on plane to all the place we all hate. I live in heaven

The southern part of Idaho down around Boise Pocatello etc has large valleys and sage brush and lots of farm land where the potatoes are grown. This is also where the large Mormon populations are and always have been.
The northern part where I live up in the panhandle has very little to no farm land having small valleys and steep mountains. The main industry here is mining and logging.
There many lakes and rivers to fish and most land past city limits is forest service and open to the public.
Riding four wheelers and dirt bikes or jeeps etc Snowmobiles in winter, there are hundreds of miles or primitive roads some going straight mountain sides to take you miles into the mountains to lakes and rivers or for hunting.
A few years ago Californians came here in droves but that has eased and easterners are coming now.
Most settle in around Coeur D Alene and the surrounding small towns around it. Most of the natives have moved in this area and most people you encounter will be from Ca or north easterners.
Spokane Washington is a ten minute drive from this area. If you want to get out and away on the edge of wilderness you can go east about 15 minutes over a pass and drop into a area called the silver valley where the silver mines are and tiny towns that are along I-90 and end at the Montana border. It is 45 miles across the panhandle.
Living in the silver valley you can spend time in Montana as well being close to the Bob Marshall wilderness are etc.
Growing up here I spent as much time in Montana as I did in Idaho.
Open carry is common and there are many guns stores and gun shows in the surrounding towns and large ones in Spokane Washington.
Land is cheap here as well as homes. There is a lot of lake front property as well with many lakes here.
There are ranges all over for shooting and A sporting goods place here called black sheep that had ammo during the last shortage as well as this one. 22 LR was about the only shortage here.
There are griz bear here and they have come into town in the silver valley tow of them shot from yards in the last three years.
So keep in mind in the woods here make sure your carrying something more powerful than your deer rifle from back east.
Chances are slim being attacked but there is s chance.
Black bear are every where and you can kill two a year and many go up around 500 pounds and a few are aggressive but for the most part run off if you come across them.
Moose are every where and you have to draw for a tag so they are over running every thing.
Elk season has been cut to tow weeks because of the wolf depredation on the herds.
You can hunt white tail and mule deer here as well as wolves and a large population of cougars to hunt.
Both blue and ruffle grouse and pheasant as well as duck and goose hunting.
The temperatures here in winter rarely get below zero buit snow fall can be a lot snowing three feet over night etc.The valleys being narrow and protected by the mountains there is little wind for blizzards so they are not a problem.
I used to drive truck long haul years ago and have been all over upstate newyork in winter and its way colder out there than here.
Come on out you will love it here.

We need more conservatives in Alberta. There's been a lot of liberals sneakin' in after dark and they will ruin the place. Just sayin.........if you were looking for a bigger move.

Why would an American looking for freedom move to Canada. The only Americans to do that were Draft dodgers 50 years ago.
