    What drives you to hunt other parts of our country? Strictly hunting reason?

    Change of scenery. Love to hunt new places. A learning tool.

    The chance to see whitetails in all the diverse habitats that they live in. Its amazing that one species can live in so many different places.

    Just the opportunity to hunt other game. See what we don't have here, such as mountains. Funny, I thought up in nortern wi, was mountainous, what a joke compared to the big horns in wy/mont. What a view from up there, unbelieveable.

    It dont get any better than showing up at a new spot in a different state the last week of Oct or first week of Nov, with no prior scouting, no trail cam pics or any thing else to go on, Just your feet on the ground, reading buck sign till you find a spot that makes heart pick up a beat or two, then just sitting by a fire sliding a broadhead across a stone, thinking about what tomorrows hunt
    might bring.

    The people I meet.

    That is why we keep going back to MT every year. The ranchers have become great friends, and overall can not find better people.

    ...The bucks on the Milk River aren't too bad of a reason to go back either.

    Lots of reasons-OTC elk tags and meeting & hunting with some of the nicest people and in turn becoming friends with them.
    Getting more days afield than my state allows is a big factor for me hunting Ohio.
    The more I go places, the more I want to. This country has so much to offer, and I've got MANY more friends I'd like to hunt with.
