Well, the income tax increase in Illinois was the straw that broke the camel's back. On July 18, I accepted a transfer to the front range of Colorado for work. I already had permits for CO antelope (rifle) in October. My daughter and I also have late plains muley tags (rifle) for December. I kept the IL lease so I'll spend a few weeks back there in October and November. Since CO doesn't acknowledge residency for 6 months, I will be a NR for both IL and CO this year. I didn't even apply for the MO Managed hunts this year. Next year I can apply for everything as a resident out here....and I will. Looking forward to a chance at sheep, goats, moose, bears, lions, merriams turks, muleys, antelope, elk and tons of small game. Montauk is great, but looking forward to wild trout fishing with the girls. This morning it was 53 degrees when I made coffee so I'm not missing the Midwest right now.
