Well next year I plan on buying some land down south, And i am unsure of where at i should go. I am 17 and i got a buch of money that im going to use to buy a few acres of land with (20-40 acres preferably) and I want someplace down south, I plan on building a house on it a few years down the road but, i need to know what states have good economies and cheap living costs. I have been seriously considering northern Alabama. I don't want to go someplace where I wont be able to get a job or anything. I dont want to live anyplace north because I cant stand the cold weather which is the main reason im headed south. One thing that is also VERY important to me is i need to live someplace where there is good hunting and fishing because that is my passion and I couldn't live without it, so areas with high game concentration are a must for me.

Anyone have any suggestions for me, I need some help and dont really know where to start.

Northern Alabama can still get quite cold in the winter so you may want to consider something further south. I'd recommend areas around Valdosta, Georgia where land is quite affordable. Check out nearby Brooks County.

You pretty much can't go wrong anywhere in the South, based on your qualifications. I'm sure states like 'Bama and Mississippi could use your money, so maybe head there first?

A few thoughts for you, Huntsville Alabama area, Cary NC area, north of DFW, SW, W, FW, R of Houston tx. I believe all these areas have good economies and availability of jobs. Getting outside the city proper is what it would take to find that much land. But the growth trends may over take you even well outside the cities so consider that in your deliberations. Good luck
