The Peach State may be known for its Southern hospitality and lush scenery, but it’s also renowned for its whitetail deer and wild turkeys. With the beautiful Appalachians and Blue Ridge Mountains in the north and gently rolling coastal plains in the south, Georgia hunting trips are some of the prettiest around.
Home to the Eastern Wild Turkey, the forests of Georgia are a great place to scout foul. Usually held from March to May each year, wild turkey season generates quite a buzz throughout the state, with thousands of avid marksmen planning their Georgia hunting trips then. If you’re planning to hunt on public lands (known as WMAs, or Wildlife Management Areas), some of the best spots include Berry College and Coosawattee - see the Georgia Department of Natural Resources for details.
Georgia hunting trips are also a great way to bag whitetail deer. Producing one of the nation’s highest harvests of whitetails in the nation, the state is known for giving hunters a successful season. Stick to the southern half of the state for the best hunting - mountainous areas in the north provide too rugged of a terrain for tracking deer.
South Dakota isn’t known as "Pheasant Country" for nothing. Hunters flock to this prime foul destination from October to January each year hoping to get in on the action, many booking guided hunting trips with trained dogs. If South Dakota hunting trips are on your itinerary, stop by the Pheasant Country Web site for news and information.
Remember, Midwestern fall and early winter weather can be cold and even snowy, so plan for chilly temperatures. Thankfully, you can always control the climate in your Cruise America RV, so staying warm at night is easy.
The second-largest state in the nation, Texas offers a vast expanse of land. Just as the scenery changes frequently - from wooded forests to wide-open ranchland, Gulf Coast beaches to desert landscapes - so do the hunting opportunities. In fact, you can hunt almost anything somewhere in Texas: whitetail deer, mule deer, waterfowl, turkey, quail and more.
For unique hunting trips in Texas, try javelina or wild hog excursions. Also known as peccaries, javelinas are a swine-like mammal found throughout western Texas. Meanwhile, wild hogs - sometimes called the "poor man’s grizzly" - offer a challenging hunting experience. But no matter what you choose, remember that everything’s bigger in Texas - javelina and hogs are big game here.
