Best Towns 2010

Outdoor Life’s third annual ranking of the best towns in America for hunters and fishermen.

Devils Lake has been ranked 22 in Outdoor Life’s Best Towns 2010! (See rankings)

How They Derive Their List
The ranking are based on the performance of hundreds of towns in various socio-economic and outdoors-related categories. Socio-economic subcategories, which make up 40 percent of the overall score, include population percent growth since 2000, median household income, median home value, cost of living, unemployment rate, population density, mean commute time and amenities. Outdoors-related subcategories, which combine to account for 60 percent of the overall score, include the gun-friendliness of each town’s state, huntable and fishable species nearby, proximity to public land and waters, and the potential for taking a trophy-caliber animal or fish nearby.
