Rhode Island

Despite being the smallest state in the Union, the Ocean State has a lot to offer, from its 400 miles of Atlantic coastline to its high concentration of forested land. Between the founding of Providence in 1635, to the ratification of the Constitution in 1776, Rhode Island has served a vital role in our nation’s history. From the coastal lowland in the south and east and rolling hills from New England’s upland in the west, the activities available to sportsmen are immense. Species that are typically found in the Ocean State include whitetail deer, wild turkeys, and various types of waterfowl.
