    I am in the position to buy a large chunk of land 500 acres+ I have been looking in Missouri, Tennessee and Kentucky.

    But I have been thinking about buying a tract of land in Montana, or some other NW state that offers more game to hunt.

    If you were in this position what would you do?

    I would buy close to home so I would be able to use it more and develope the habitat for what I wanted to hunt. (rabbits,quail,dove,deer & turkey)

    Chase, if it were me 500 good acres in Missouri. Montana is an awfully long drive and what with gas bein' higher than he[[ why leave Missouri. I love Montana but I want to be able to get to my property fairly quick. Remember the grass isn't always greener some place else. 500 acres give you a big enough piece of land to manage for many types of game and it will close enough you can do this often.

    Depends on what you want to do with it in the long run.

    I'd buy close to home.

    Well it really depends on where you want to spend the next few years. That takes a little more deciding on your part than anything! Are you ready to get outta MO? Have you spent enough time in MT to decide if you want to be there?

    Some friends of ours went through the same thing. Bought land in Montana, and after the first winter they were out of there. Write down the pro's and con's of each state and then decide. Good luck!

    500 acres in Missouri = a lot of land
    500 acrces in Monyana = not so much

    It depends what type of weather you like. If you like cold, go north, but if you like hot/humid stay here.

    Did some flying into Twin Bridges, MT for some fly fishing and it was great. Ted Turner owns a freakin valley up there as well. But as some people have said, they really do have winters there! But the land, water, skies, are so, well lets just say a little piece of heaven! If you want neighbors you got em, if not, then you do not! If I were to buy in MO, then Grundy County!

    Given a choice I'd buy 160 acres to live on in SEMO Ozark foot hills cause I love Current and Black River, and 340 acres in NEMO to hunt on.

    Depends where your planning on living. I'd be weary having land all the way across the continent.

    We are considering purchasing land in Souther Missouri and even that distance scares me.

    Who is on the land while you are away, what are they doing? I can't imagine having land across the states and not being able to watch it. I say buy 500 as close as you can afford.

    I'll tell you what, there's a lot better place to buy that some of the areas of TN and KY. My folks live in South Central KY just north of Nashville, TN and there just are hardly ANY deer or turkey in their county at all. I'm not real up on the rest of the two states but I'd stay out of that area for sure. As far as I'm concerned, it doesn't get much better than old MO.
