good states for hunting AND riding?

hello there. hope i put this thread in the right spot.
my parents, my boyfriend and i are looking to possibly move out of state. (living in southeastern wi currently)

we're looking for::
temperatures: pretty mild temps, so for winter we'd like to move somewhere where the average temps (typically) don't go below 20s. snow isn't a big problem, my mom hates it but can deal with it. for summer, would definitely like to be somewhere where it's not ALWAYS upper 80s/90s. its great if there are days like that throughout summer, but again not as the average temperature
really not a fan of constant high humidity, like florida (our humidity here in wi is pretty bad all summer too).. rather be somewhere a little more dry.

hobbies: obviously has to be somewhere with plenty of riding opportunities lots of trail riding, and at least a few large-ish training barns, especially for dressage/jumping. hunting is a big thing. my boyfriend is a huge deer hunter, and would LOVE to be somewhere with elk, bear, bighorn sheep, antelope, moose, any big game really. so somewhere with plenty of hunting seasons/opportunities would be great.
my parents canoe and fish, but i imagine it'd be pretty easy most anywhere to find places for that.

any input would be amazing! i've done lots of research, and utah sounds great, except i'm not sure how many horse farms are out there.
thanks guys =D

Maybe parts of Arkansas. Utah would be cold to me, if you don't want that, I sure wouldn't go there.

And upper Alabama is good, as is Tennessee.

Upper MS, and LA are nice also.

The cold is something I am not impressed with, as so far have had 4 storms, with snow 9 to 12 inches deep.

Remind me again why I left L. A. or Lower Alabama????

But you might also like upper GA?

Tennessee has quite a few riding spots (trail riding wise) and tons of big horse arenas. The hunting don't get much better either. :)

The only bad thing is the humidity can be pretty bad to it, but I'm used to it (even though I've lived here since birth), and we don't have big game like elk and such. But deer? Oh yeah. They are EVERYWHERE. We got bears too.
