Kanab Ranked As Best Utah Town For Sportsmen

Kanab is the best Utah town for sportsmen, according to Outdoor Life Magazine. That southern Utah community came in at #12 in the magazine's national List.

The magazine's June/July edition issue provides the rankings. You can see them here.

The Deseret News has this article on the magazine's list. Below are excerpts.

"Outdoorsmen want world-class hunting and fishing, but like everyone else, they also want to have a high quality of life," says Todd Smith, Outdoor Life editor-in-chief. "The towns on this list offer the best of the outdoors as well as decent homes and schools and good-paying jobs. They are truly dream towns for sportsmen."

In addition to Kanab, Heber City, Vernal, Richfield, Cedar City, Logan and Price made the list from Utah.

Kanab is located on the Utah/Arizona border, close to Zion and Bryce Canyon national parks and Lake Powell. There are excellent deer hunting opportunities in the nearby mountain - including some units that consistently produce trophy animals. There are also great fishing spots nearby.
