Great Places To Hunt Deer In The USA

If you are a deer hunter, you know the excitement of tracking down a big buck and the adrenaline rush that comes when you actually take it down. Despite being less accepted than it was in the past, deer hunting is still an incredibly popular sport. In fact, in rural areas hunting white-tail is an institution with many families, and making a first kill is a rite of passage for young hunters. You probably have your own favorite hunting spots near to where you live, but it can be exhilarating to go hunting in other parts of the country – the experience is incredibly varied, with each state having its own particular character. Here are some of the best places to go deer hunting in the United States.

If you are looking for some of the largest bucks you will find anywhere, then Iowa is a must-visit destination. The deer population is not as big as some other states – about 200,000 – but you’ll be astounded by the size of the white-tail deer there. According to Iowa’s Department of Natural Resources (DNR), one of the reasons for this is that there is plenty of forage for deer in the state, and the relatively mild winters let them grow to extraordinary sizes. In fact, the Iowa DNR actually maintains a registry of big game that has been shot in the state, and will award you a certificate if you bag a deer with a trophy-sized rack of antlers. The state is also friendly to hunters – because the economy in Iowa is so dependent on farming, the state wants to keep deer populations under control to prevent damage to crops. Continue Reading

New York – Still A Top City Destination

Wyndham Garden Long Island City Manhattan ViewThere are few cities in the world that create as much excitement in the human mind as New York City does. The Big Apple is, in fact, big in just about every sense of the world – from the size of the buildings, to the size of plates of food, and the size of the personalities – and yet geographically it is a lot smaller than many of the other ‘big’ cities on this planet.

I vividly remember my first glimpse of New York City. Having arrived at JFK Airport, I was sat on a coach heading for Manhattan. When you see that most famous of world skyline’s in the distance, with the Empire State Building standing tall and proud, you can’t help but feel joy, excitement and wonder.

New York truly is a must visit city. There are as many as 800 languages spoken in the city, and as such it’s a destination where you can eat food from every single corner of the world. From Italian (New York pizza is like no other), to Chinese and, of course, the good old American burgers and fries, New York’s culinary scene is a wonderful thing – with so many restaurants around you can eat well for a very pocket friendly amount.

Away from the dining table, there is no other island with so much to do. A visit to the top of the Empire State Building is considered a must, and while this was a tip I followed, I found the top of the Rockefeller Centre a more enjoyable experience: not only is the viewing platform friendlier in terms of space and fencing material, but you also get to have the Empire State Building in your photographs.
