California: The Golden State
One of the only states where it's possible to ski and swim in the ocean the same day, California is an adventurer's haven. Bursting with national parks, rivers, forests, and beaches, California is a one-stop shop for a sportsman or woman. Ecological reserves and dense wildlife areas are going to be the easiest and most popular way to hunt this paradise, but private hunting lands are available as well.
Because of the dense natural offerings, California is home to deer, elk, pronghorn, bear, wild pigs, and big horn sheep. Northern California and Southern California could very well be different states. The differentiation between the two is hardly minor and allows for some of the most impressive hunting and fishing in the country. Plentiful bodies of water make California a premier destination for the avid fisherman. Whether it’s a brown trout, or tilapia, it is easy to find all over the state.
