There's a park on the border of Anchorage that is bigger than Rhode Island.

Shot a sheep back there.

As for RI ,it was part of MA at one time then Roger Williams broke away from the puritans in colonial times because of religion, it is the smallest state in the union. It take about 1 1/2 hours to cross the state.The city of Woonscocket was the one of the main city during WW2 for building for the war , also the city is full of French Canadians because of they migrated there when times was bad in the and before the 1920's .Yes you are limited to the use of only body grip traps. The state is know for Newport for the use to be high class people and well know use to live I do not know if still is. Also use to be know for its beaches of the ocean . Also have a naval base in Newport.It is a democrat state always was. use to have some breweries of beer. The city of Providence is the capital also is run by the mob, First it was the Italian then after they got take out I was told the Russians are there now . there is some places to hunt and fish. Need to look around , it got worst since I left the area since I was brought up over the boarder in MA .use to go in RI all the time back then . I also use to sell my furs to a fur buyer in RI in North Smithfield. That was many years ago.

One of the original 13 colonies, the full name is Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. Of course the smallest state has the longest name. The " Rhode" part was supposedly after Rhodes Island in Greece because some thought the eastern part resembled that place. Although very small and a haven for liberals and the mafia, Rhode Island has an interesting colonial history in regard to religious freedom which led to the protections afforded in the US Constitution.

The south county areas have very nice ocean beaches although the water is cold. Bristol is quite interesting and I saw the tall ships there decades ago. Bristol also used to host some major yacht races, maybe still does. Seafood is abundant.

Back in the 1960's the western part of the state had a lot of small farms and you could get permission to shoot groundhogs. Now it's almost all subdivisions.

One of the domestic nuclear criticality accidents occurred at Wood River Junction in 1964, resulting in a fatal radiation exposure to one person.

Kinda like NH! Pretty place but too many people, like all the east! I worked in Berlin NH thirty years ago. Hired some locals to help me get the job done, and few in that town had been farther away than the roundy rounnd race track about fifteen miles west of town. They all ask me the same question when they found out where I was from, "do you still have Indians and buffalo running around out there"? My standard answer was, "Good lord, it's the twentieth century, where have you been"! lol

I spent about a month there for a school back in 2017. I was in Newport, which is a resort town. Providence and Newport have a pretty high population densities. That being said, once you got out of the cities it seemed to contain a fair amount of woods and small farms. Kind of a pretty state overall. Excellent fishing there. I was also surprised at the amount of public hunting areas found around the state, some pretty large.

In August of this year I am supposed to be transferring up there. I guess I will be able to tell you guys all about it.
