My husband is an AVID fisherman (he loves his bass) and hunter (deer, turkey, phesant, dove, rabbit) here in WI and I think that's what's mainly holding him back (well, that and the access to an abundance of lakes, rivers, etc.). If you moved from WI and do those activities, did you miss it? What do you miss about WI?

If you are really into the lake country and the northwoods of Wisconsin, Colorado is likely to be a disappointment. On the other hand, if you like big, high mountains, deserts and red rock canyon country set in an extremely dry climate with lots of sun, then you'll love Colorado.

Interesting fact, not a single lake on the front range of Colorado is natural

Very well aware of those facts... wondering from some people who moved from WI if they miss it or if they find ways to do those activities.

We moved from WI to Colorado when I was 10 (1983/1984). We lived in the middle of the forest near Black River Falls and moved to the high desert of Craig. It was quite a shock.

I miss the forests, the hills, lakes, and rivers, but I wouldn't trade watching the sun set behind the Front Range for it. I also don't miss the humidity of the midwest, either.
