Thinkin about a change of scenery. Currently reside in SD. Have a cousin in Sheboygan who wants me to relocate. Don't really have anything to hold me here. Hows the hunting and shooting there? Is the area NFA friendly? What kind of job opportunities are available? I currently work on a farm, and am experienced in operating heavy equipment and in building construction.

its a great city, if you have money or own a business, or work for Kohler. It is a manufacturing town, so if you are blue-collar, thats great. Otherwise its an awsome city. My wife's family is from there, so we get up there at least once a month, and I love it.

Hunting is OK in the direct area but really good if you drive a few hours.
NFA A+, state has preemption and pretty much anything nfa is legal. 48hr State handgun check w/ state fee($8 going to $30(with rumors that it isn't going up)).
HOWEVER, No CCW, we are the last of two states that have no form of CCW.

Kohler is big in that area so it supports pretty good jobs. My co-worker commutes from there to Milwaukee everyday, thats a bit of a drive.

It's actually a pretty nice area between greenbay and milwaukee.

The current state governor is a douche, elected by the populous in Milwaukee and Madison. His leash is kept pretty tight by the rest of the electives, but he's sneaky and somewhat teflon coated.

In Sheboygan County the land/house prices suck. It seems like every seller thinks that everyone works at Kohler and prices the houses accordingly throughout the county. However, if you get out of the county and go to Manitowoc county (about 10 miles north) the house/land prices are much better.
If you are surviving/doing well now, when you move here you will be doing so much better at less than what you earn now. When I moved back from CA, my car insurance was cut in half, and everything else is much cheaper too. ($565 for a 2 bedroom apartment, heat and water included, garage too. Try to find that anywhere near SD)
There are many reasons to move here, and in general, life is much better. Many will welcome you.

holy contradiction batman.

from my experience of living in the Madison metro area, housing prices in Sheboygan are astonishingly affordable. Especially in today's market with prices plummeting.

Not really, boy wonder. That price is for an apartment, and it is the price for a long term lease. However, if you are looking for land to build a house on, or to buy a house, that is when sticker shock hits you. (How about 2 acres on a hill west of Howards Grove for $198,900? Howards Grove is a small town west of Sheboygan where 3,000 people live). Granted the price I mention is from earlier this year, but if you get out of Sheboygan county the prices are between $15,000 and $30,000 lower.

I believe SD stands for South Dakota, I would think things like rent and such would be close to the same. Be cautious of a move at this time, jobs suck at this time for my side of the state, I do not know how the jobs are out east. (I am on the west coast of WI)

DOAH! Sorry, my bad. I saw SD and thought of San Diego, which is where I was for 5 years.
If it is South Dakota, I have no clue about housing and prices. Weather can really suck, though. (Between cold and blizzards in the winter, and 90's and 100's in the summer) The area around South Dakota is very beautiful and some of my favorite spots in all the places I have ever been. (Custer State Park, the Badlands, Yellowstone, Mount Rushmore, etc.) You might want to reconsider moving as many people seem to want to move WI towards socialism. Some of us are trying to fight it, but far too many people don't even know it is happening, and don't even want to know.

I wouldn't go counting on finding employment at Kohler any time soon. Massive layoffs this summer made it so that you pretty much need to have 8+ years there to still have a job. There is plenty of other factories in the area, but none have quite as favorable of benefits as Kohler (my father has been there 37+ years, and I've been there the last 4 summers).

Hunting pressure is pretty high on most public lands, but in general the hunting is pretty good. I hunt the Kiel Swamp which is pretty amazing for bow hunting, but again pressure seems to make gun hunting less appealing. There's plenty of hunting clubs and the pheasant hunting is moderately good as a result. Fishing on Lake Michigan can be a blast too.

Land prices are pretty high relative to other places in WI, but they aren't too bad.

And finally, screw Howard's Grove. Go EHS Resorters!
