    South Dakota has billboards at the state line proclaiming "Welcome to South Dakota. We hunt what we eat. We eat what we hunt. Friends of furry animals not welcome here" People like that can't be all that bad. Too bad they don't have Steelhead.

    Idaho has roadside signs saying game crossing. Not Bambie crossing like in some other states. I wouldn't doubt if road kill was legal in Idaho. And they have Steelhead. Idahoans have a pretty good track record of sorting through all the liberal B.S. & rejecting it, so they get points in my book for that.

    True, true!

    I'm torn. Love Colorado, but too many people. Idaho is nice, Western WY is good but a bit isolated in terms of variety of fishing and Western MT is looking nice. Oregon is hard to beat too, except for the Cali's moving in, but that issue exists everywhere! I just love the Smallie fishing opportunity in OR, plus the Steelhead, oh and waterfowl hunting too!
