I don't know where they hunt, but I'm sure that it's as wild as it gets. You guys are more than welcome to come up here and hunt anytime and I don't believe that it's that difficult to organize. You'll meet a lot of like minded people. Big game is Moose, White tail and Black bear. Small game, if you get bored, you can pick off a porcupine, bag a bird, or whack a weasel.
Be careful what you say I am retiring in march

is hunting that expensive, really? i pay $500 or so every year for an out-of-state license and tag to hunt north Idaho mule deer. I sleep in a tent and eat cheap, that's all it really costs me besides gas. You've got all the time in the world if you are retired, can't you just drive to ID, MT, CO, or WY and hunt? I know $500 may not be "cheap" but it's a heck of a lot cheaper than a classic car and you can scrape it up if you really want to hunt.

Definitely hunt while you can. Dad's stroke put an end to his hunting, happened during gun season in 07. He killed 3 deer that week, too. You just never know. This is coming from a redneck with my bow and gear loaded in the truck in case I get off work early. If your car runs w a 4bbl on it I wouldn't change it, personally.

Is that 500.00 over the counter? Or applied for in the spring?

Generic life advice they say it is generally better to spend money on experiences rather than things.... Leads to more long term happiness from the memories, etc.

Here's one example article, there are plenty if you google:
