    Greetings from purgatory a.k.a. the Third World state of Missouri

    I’m originally from New York state. Moved to Michigan in 1987 for better coon hunting. Changed residency to Vermont in 1992 for better bear hunting with dogs. Changed residency back to NY in 2002 for work. Moved to MO in 2005 (seemed like a good idea at the time) and have been living Groundhog Day in MO since 2006.

    Hoping to change residency to somewhere else soon.

    Welcome aboard AWLee. MO may not be the best place to hunt but it isn't the worst either. Do you have any thoughts of or plans for a hunt in Africa? If so, do you have any specific animals in mind? What kind and caliber rifles do you own?

    So what is wrong with Missouri? I'm guessing you live in one of the less desirable areas. Anyway, welcome to the forum and to Missouri.

    The hunting in MO is OK. It’s the people and the way they run the state that is the problem.

    I’m booked to hunt Moz with the Duckworth’s in 2020
    ‘19 will be spent in cold climates with hunts in ID, NV, ME and Greenland

    I have a fair variety of rifles and calibers but am trying to streamline my guns down to 375, 270 & 6X45.

    I love the concept of having just 3 primary rifles, but I don’t think my 275 Rigby, 30/06, 30/30 & 6.5Cm are out of a job yet. However, several various 30’s, 7’s, 6.5’s & 338’s are. Long gone is anything over 375... I've decided recently I need a 9.3x62.

    I love hunting in ID but it’s too far out of the loop for me to live there and maintain my business. I’ll be lion hunting in SE ID this December.
