if moving to the mountains sounds good, be ready for the colder climate.
I live in the mountains, well rocky mountains, and would not trade it for anything, i drive a hour to work every day, but its worth it.
The views are great.
You have to get use to the different climate. It can be 80 F down in a town, but up on the mountain top its only 50.
The air is thinner, so normal exercise is different , you have to adjust and get use to less oxygen. Anyone that has gone for a ride in the hill's
and got out for a walk can tell you it will effect you. It takes a few days for your body to adjust to the different altitude.
Hunting is much different when you are walking through thigh deep snow. Best look into a few horses, which as some added things to think about.
Not sure what kind of game is there, i'd check into that as well.
The other problem with the mountains is the water table level, you would have to find land with year round running stream/river to make sure you had
enough water supply. Sure you can drill to water and put in a well, but at that depth it runs into some serious cash.
just food for though.
