THOMPSON FALLS- Thompson Falls has been named as one of the "Best Towns for Sportsmen."
Outdoor Life magazine tapped Thompson Falls as number 16 of the best hunting and fishing towns in the United States.
The article says "this secluded town, west of the Rockies, is surrounded by massive swaths of national forest. The two most accessible -- the Kootenai and Lolo -- hold elk, whitetails, ruffed grouse and turkeys."
The article's authors say the towns made their list based solely on the outdoor opportunities in the communities. Appleton, Wisconsin came in at number one.
