As of 2105, the southern region of Arkansas near Monticello offers some of the best public hunting lands in the United States, while the western Ozarks also have considerable hunting potential in the national forests. Fort Stewart and the Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge offer prime public hunting grounds in Georgia.
The upper coastal plains of Georgia have considerable white-tail deer herds. Idaho provides good public hunting grounds in the national forests from the Salmon river up to the Canadian border. Other hunting hot spots include agricultural land along the state's western border with Washington. Areas of Kentucky, especially around the town of Paducah, offer public hunting, and the state is well known for its large white-tail deer.
