I'm just wondering where everyone hails from. I see posts and try to picture the type of hunting terrain, but can't figure it out because I don't really know where anyone is.

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!! ohmy.gif

I'm also in Carlsbad N.M. We have desert terrain w/ sand, mesquite, and sage brush on one side and juniper
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. wink.gif

I'm from S.W. MN in Yellow Medicine county bout 30 miles from the SoDak border. 1000ft above sea level. It's flat, black dirt (good ole glacial till;) ), farmland cut in 1 miles sections, as seen in the "Children of the Corn" movies good for red fox and pheasant and cottontails. A few abandoned farmsites make good places to poke around. A short jog to the border is pasture land rolling small hills and cricks where coyote frollick and there's some ground squirel fields out there, too.

I'm from Green Bay WI. I mostly hunt somewhat flat terrain; farm fields mixed with small woods. Lakes and the shore of Green Bay is highly productive too (read "big ice"). These areas are dominated by cattails and marsh grasses.

  • Interests:First and foremost a shooter.........I have always hunted and for the most part done pretty well. Definitely a better shooter. I hunt big game all over the state of CO including antelope, deer and elk. I between BG hunts I fill in with lots of prairie dogs and this year 2004 I am going to KS for a deer hunt. Just got hooked up for my first official coyote hunt end of Feb. 2004. I have access to lots of excellent prairie property and the hospitality is excellent too. Go figure my big sis married a guy that farms 12000 acres.

Posted 26 April 2004 - 06:53 AM

Live in Denver, CO and hunt alot of the eastern plains for deer, antelope, prairie dogs and coyotes. Basically dry land farm country with sage brush sand hills and lots of CRP land. To the west I hunt elk in several different high mountain areas up to timberline that are pretty much pine forest and rock country with lots of aspen valleys and wild grass meadows.

I am from Eastern Arizona, the White Mountains. My front yard has an elevation of 7019 feet. Arizona is known for having the largest stand of Ponderosa pine forest in North America. Well at least we did two years ago before the Rodeo/Chedeski fire went through and burned 468,638 acres of our forest.

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. cool.gif

South Western IL. 20 minutes east of St. Louis MO and the Mississippi River.

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 dry.gif We do have some beans and milo as well and a crick here and there. Pretty flat for the most part.
