I have never hunted florida , but it has the roughest ugliest woods i have ever seen. If i lived down there, id sell all my hunting stuff and buy a nice boat and fish exclusivelyEver since I moved down to Florida from Utah last year the hunting has been dismal. At this point just making it up to TN every year or two to make use of my lifetime license is going to have to suffice - the public land hunting up there is better than most of the hunting down here I've encountered!
AK blacktails can be done fairly reasonable. Have done it DIY twice on Prince of Wales Island, plus can add black bear and some of the best fishing I've ever experienced.I'd love to do a coues archery hunt. As for other whitetails, I don't know if I'd ever be more interested in anywhere else than southern Ohio. It's got big woods, hills & hollers, farms, swamps, and river bottoms. And there are big ones to be hunted in all terrains. For an adventure hunt I'd really like to hunt blacktails in Alaska.
I brought back a hunting regulation book from when I was in Alaska a couple of weeks ago and lord help me it’s like I’m trying to read Chinese.AK blacktails can be done fairly reasonable.

I’d like a few weeks of chasing Oklahoma whitetails with a bow on public. Sounds crazy I know, but it appeals to me.
All of that, and especially your last sentence, is why I’d like it I believe.Doesn't sound crazy at all. Oklahoma is a big buck sleeper state. With Texas below and west, Kansas above, and Missouri east, it's only logical that it's covered up with big bucks. Better yet, outside of the major cities it has a sparse human population per sq. mile.
Man I know exactly what you mean. I watch those whitetail adrenaline dvds and it makes my heart about blow outta my chest! I’d love to try it like Scheffler with a recurve one day!!!I’m so used to hunting whitetails that you can’t see, it would be nice to spot and stalk whitetails for once. I was able to do some of that in Iowa and it’s such an awesome challenge. I think some of the western states where Muley and whitetail habitat overlap would be great or something like the Milk River. I’ve been fortunate to hunt a lot of various places like Canada, Iowa Pennsylvania, Alabama and for me the spot and stalk style is the funest.
We used to waterfowl hunt each year in way northern North Dakota, and the last couple (1999,2000,2001) we went up to Good Spirit Lake Saskatchewan for a couple days to chase geese. The deer we saw were ASTOUNDING to say the least.Saskatchewan Canada, cold, big racks, big bodied deer. Always wanted to go there.
I did a hunt in Mexico several years ago. Most bucks I have ever seen in a weeks time!Good luck! I cannot wait for you to send me some pics!
I will say a W TX or even a Old Mexico whitetail hunt would be epic too.
I really need to inherit some money so I can do these things!
All of that, and especially your last sentence, is why I’d like it I believe.
My cousin and I go to eastern Oklahoma every other year to visit friends, and I’ve been considering a hunting trip somewhere in the State. Just need to dig a little deeper and start serious planning. I’ve seen some giants that come from there.My first duty station as a young troop was in Altus, Oklahoma, the SW corner of the state. I fell in love with the place. Wide open prairies with mountains in the distance. Rodeos all the time, beautiful cowgirls, excellent fishing, wildlife everywhere. People are friendly & family oriented like here in TN except there a lot fewer of them. You can easily find a place where you can't even see a neighbor any direction. Not only good deer hunting but a healthy elk & antelope herd in certain areas of the state. City is close enough for convenience but far enough away to not be bothered by it. That all said, I think the better whitetail hunting was in the northern half of the state. It was pretty good down where I was at in the Red River valley, but up along the Kansas border is where it was best.
