So, Where Is Everyone From?

So, why don't we all post where we are from and what type of terrain you hunt?
I am from Los Angeles, California. I hunt high desert (elevations of 4000'+) which sometimes intermingle with scrub oak and pinion pines. Also, mountains with pines and oaks and rolling hills with oaks.
I'm looking forward to hearing from everyone! Lurkers, you too!!

and pinion pine on the other. Ruidoso N.M. is about 2.5 hrs. from us w/ high mountains up to 12000 ft.
We have what the map says is a river (pecos). There is water to fish but not much. You can also drive for about
an hour and be in very rugged desert mountain terrain.

To the north are grass lands mixed with cedars with rolling hills and small canyons that drop down to 5600 feet . This is pronghorn country. it also has coyotes, crows, foxes, great prairie dog villages and mountain lions.
To the South are pine forests with mountains up to 11000 feet. This is elk country, it also has coyotes and deer.
To the East are cedars, pinion trees and black mesas with small canyons. This is coyote country, it also has crow and feral pigs.
To the west are grass lands that go up to a pine forest with hills in elevation of 10000 feet. This is also pronghorn country, it also has elk, deer, coyote, and bobcats.
Although my Dad used to varmint hunt a lot I did not get excited about it until recently. So far I have mostly shot prairie dogs. I am just starting to get into coyote calling. It looks to be a fun sport. Thank you all for all of your help so far.

Cyber, there is no way you guys can have even more corn than us. Farm fields broken by small woodlots of oak, maple, sycamore, cottonwood, hickory, etc. and new houses popping up every frickin place I look, urban sprawl We do have some beans and milo as well and a crick here and there. Pretty flat for the most part.

I've missed out on my opportunity to go duck hunting this year, but the guy whom I bought my traps of(and did work experience with last year) gave my dad and I, 4 ducks out of his bag as his "consolation prize".

Now wheres that number for Auntie Sue in TX, I fancy Frikasee Duck.
