    Wyoming, Vast tracts of wide open State and Federal public land and great hunting of everything but livestock.

    Texas, Very little public land, crowded. Majority of hunting on private land, requiring ownership or leases and trophy fees, even for Texas Rats (feral hogs), or a cousin with acreage. "wildlife" (including T. Rats) is actually raised as livestock and is just as expensive.

    ^guilty^ as charged...due to us being our own country at one point.

    That is about the only thing we don't have going for us is much public land.

    Will be very interesting to see how states populations and politics change over the years.

    Fella's;

    The Stuckenhoff range in Casper is a pretty nice facility. And public, not a private gun club either.

    Splattergun has a good point. Unfortunately, TX has very little public land due to it being an independent republic where the land was already bought up prior to joining the U.S. If I did not marry into a family with land, I would not be able to hunt nearly as much or maybe not at all.

    As a Texan who lived in Cheyenne for three years, I do miss Wyoming. I am a sucker for public land and I used public land a lot when I lived there. The wind sucked something awful and the real estate was way too high because several Coloradans preferred to live there and drive down to ft Collins for work.
    I would have a hard time giving up all the warm weather activities I participate in down here. And how in the world would I get my hog hunting fix in Wyoming. I love both states almost equally though. I wish I could live in both.

    Heh.

    Though I would love to know why I keep seeing all these Florida and California plates in town. Maybe I should call up the DOT and tell them something's wrong with their signs since they keep wandering in. :p

    I grew up in Northern Colorado but moved up here to Cheyenne a while back and I don't regret a thing!

    Good people, love the culture, and the taxes aren't bad either!

    I enjoy Cheyenne quite a bit. It's big enough to have everything I need but not so crowded that I feel like I'm going to be claustrophobic. Plus, if you need feel the need to go to some metropolis Denver's only an hour and a half away.

    As for guns and shooting, loads of stuff in town and about. To go shooting you can either go west 30min between September and May, go north 30mins to one range, skeet and trap on the West of town, and the new Laramie County (Archer Complex) range opened not too long ago about 15-20mins East. The last one's pretty nice, if not the nicest public range I've been to with lots of lanes and an indoor pistol range when it gets too cold for people.
