MMMMMMMMmmmmm thats a tuff one, Florida has some beautiful Osceola birds I have always wanted to go their but I hear the Merriams gobble all the time all day long, so that would another good choice. But them Rios are some pretty birds two. Or you could just head south a chase them Easterns but they are a little harder to get close to. but your always welcome in Dixie. HHHHHHHHHhhmmmmmmmmmmm I would go to the Merriams just because of the hunting. I hear it a blast, I hear that Hawaii is one of the top places to hunt them.
Its not always about the Harvest.Its about all the events & memories the Good Lord Blessed you with during the Hunt.Those are the Real Trophys!Remember to Love this land & Pass It on(25years experience of chasin Beards & Bucks)

For Easterns, I dont think you can beat KY. Other states have a more generous bag limit.

If money was no barrier, I would head out to Wyoming on a Meriams hunt. I was there in May of 2008 and would love to go back.

ANY WHERES I can get to, I go! Been blessed to have been able to harvest 2 world slams and 7 Grands to date, but if I had ONLY one hunt to go on this year??? I would go back to Mexico for Goulds!

I hope to finish my slam in Kansas this April. I would love to take a goulds. The prettiest of all the birds, in my opinion.

KY is covered up with birds... Why would you want to go somewhere else unless your walls are just covered up with Eastern Tail Feathers. TN has a four bird limit.
