My wife and I have done quite a bit of traveling, and want to move to either one of our favorite states, Tennessee or Wyoming. I have visited the CD forum on Wyoming, now I'm here on the Tennessee site. We have many questions and hope to get some answered here on CD. We both are avid hunters and horseback riders, and definately want to live in the country.For the hunters, do you guys hunt mostly in hunting leases, and how expensive are they, and how hard are they to get into. Is most of the hunting done on state land, or private land? For the horse people, are there alot of trails to ride horses, and where are the best areas in the state to ride, and camp. we are leaning towards the eastern part of the state, but our minds are not made up yet. What parts of the state would webe able to enjoy our favorite past times. Wyoming is more wide open country, but the winters are harsher there, and it is farther from our family. Both states are beautiful in there own right, and we are looking forward to finding out as much as we can to make our decision. Thanks

You can google state parks that allow hunting and have riding facilities. Some do and some dont. Some of the hunting reserves will also have draw hunts. I can only speak for my area on private usage. Most hunting now is on your own land or leases. There is very little private land open these days for hunting or riding. Im not sure lease prices. From what I hear anywhere from 250 to 600. I guess it depends on the acrage. Usually leases have a limited number of members.
As far a riding there are some parks that allow horses and there a few private areas that charge a fee. It is very difficult to find any big wide open to ride anymore. People have really begun posting their land and do not want people on it. Thats my 2 cents.
