Where is the best deer hunting in the US?

It depends on the type of deer hunting that you like. I live in north east North Carolina and the deer hunting is really good. There are a lot of deer and the land is flat so you don't have to kill yourself to get to the deer. I have lived and hunted in Kodiak, Alaska where you could not harvest as many deer but the hunting was spectacular. I loved the mountains. Everyone will tell you that their place to hunt is the best. It is entirely up to the individual. I would like to go to Texas to hunt white tails and to the west to hunt mule deer. Every state has some really good deer hunting.

Where do you shoot the deer with a 12 gauge?
